Al Qaeda suspects among dozens of escapees in deadly Iraq prison break - CBS NewsPrisoners seized weapons and set off hours-long clashes with security guards at a prison in Saddam Hussein's hometown that left 12 dead, including 10 guards, before dozens of inmates managed to escape from the facility, Iraqi officials said Friday.
Many of those who escaped from the prison in Tikrit, 130 kilometers (80 miles) north of Baghdad, were al Qaeda suspects, said a provincial spokesman but he could not say whether the terror group was behind the prison break.
The violence erupted on Thursday night, said Mohammed al-Assi, the spokesman for Salahuddin province where Tikrit is located. Several inmates broke into the prison storeroom and grabbed weapons kept there, overpowering the guards, he said.
The prisoners then engaged in an hours-long gun battle with the security troops inside the facility before breaking out of the prison on Friday morning. Security troops later regained control of the prison, al-Assi said.
