(MENAFN -Arab News) SANAA: Eleven people were killed when attackers mounted a bomb, grenade and gun assault on the main prison in Yemen’s capital on Thursday to free inmates, security sources and witnesses said

Explosions and gunfire could be heard several kilometers away from the prison in northern Sanaa, which has Al-Qaeda members among its inmates. The biggest explosion rattled windows in the area

“A terrorist group attacked the central prison,” an Interior Ministry official said, according to comments published by the state news agency, adding there had been a car bomb followed by a gun attackon the facility. “Guards managed to confront the terrorists and forced them to flee,” the report said



Eleven people were killed, a security source said. The Interior Ministry official said seven guards were killed and four wounded, while 29 inmates, including 19 jailed for terrorism-related crimes, escaped in the chaos

The ministry released the names of the escapees and asked citizens to report any information to help capture them

Police sealed off the road to the airport, which runs through the neighborhood where the prison is located, and thick smoke was seen rising above the area.
