384 Freed in Pakistan Jailbreak

One hundred fifty militants armed with grenades and rockets stormed a prison in Pakistan Sunday, freeing 384 Islamist militants. The attack was on a prison in a tribal region where the Taliban and al Qaeda are known to hold sway. The two-hour attack on the prison included a force of gunmen in cars and pickup trucks and succeeded in freeing “some hard-core militants,” a Pakistani official said. The attacks seem to have targeted barracks where “dangerous insurgents” were quartered.
