At least 14 prisoners, including members of the radical movement "Taliban" escaped from prison in Sari Pul province in northern Afghanistan, RIA Novosti reported with reference to the Associated Press.


Escape occurred on the night of Friday. According to the provincial governor Abdul Jabar Hakbin, an explosion destroyed the prison wall, and the resulting gap rushed the prisoners.

Prison guards opened fire at the fugitives; as a result three prisoners were killed. Part of the escapees was captured; search of 14 people is now being conducted.

According to specified data, an explosive device was assembled in the prison. During the escape the inmates blew up as one of the prison tower with a guard in it.

Recall, one of the biggest escape took place in Afghanistan in April 2011. That time, 482 prisoners, most of whom were militants of "Taliban", escaped from a prison in Kandahar province.
