There was a suicide attack on one of the prisons in Kandahar, Afghanistan that had been holding a high number of hard core terrorists it seems.
NATO has gone to the extent of admitted that arch foes Taliban scored a tactical success with this suicide attack on the prison that allowed hundreds of captured enemy combatants to escape.
However a NATO general, Carlos Branco, says it was an isolated incident.
So far there has been no news of recapture of these escaped prisoners.
Afghanis have now sealed off the prison and are conducting an investigation into the attack. Talk about latcing the stable door after the horse has bolted.
Many of these escapees will finally end up somewhere in Pakistan and back in the business of what they do best.
