This story has all the trappings of a big-budget blockbuster. On Saturday notorious French gangster Redoine Faid burst from a detention center in Lille, holding four guards at gunpoint and blowing up five doors with explosives. An arrest warrant has been issued in 26 countries, Interpol has been called in, and according to a source, 150 French police are working the case. Faid, who made his name by attacking armored trucks, spent a decade in prison, was released, but got locked up again in 2011. He was apparently able to escape because the prison's overcrowding made it difficult to guard.
