'Taliban helps over 350 jail inmates escape'

Kabul: Over 350 inmates escaped from a prison after an attack by Afghan Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan's Ghazni province on Monday, an official said.
 
"He said four police guards were killed and seven others were wounded and three insurgents were also killed in the early morning attack," Dawn quoted Mohammad Ali Ahmadi, deputy provincial governor of Ghazni, as saying. 
 
"The insurgents wearing military uniforms launched a well-organised attack to free the inmates," Ahmadi said.
 
Ahmadi said the attack was launched by a suicide bomber which then allowed other insurgents to get inside the compound.
 
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack in an email to the media.
