Insurgent attack frees hundreds from Kandahar prison


www.cbc.ca

Around 10 p.m., Taliban insurgents drove a car filled with explosives up to Sarposa prison's main gate and detonated it, destroying the gate and surrounding shops and killing 10 police officers in the vicinity.

Afghan officials also said Taliban insurgents fired several rockets at parts of the prison.

Canadian forces and other NATO troops have been deployed to Kandahar after the main prison in the southern Afghan city was attacked by militants, who set most of the prisoners free.

This is only a couple of hours old. Some info coming out about it slowly. Kandahar province is where the Canadian troops are .quartered.

A 1000 inmates freed. This is a bold attack by the Taliban. This could be a rough summer for our troops in Afghanistan.

Reports say that the Canadian troops have things under control now but with a 1000 people freed, there likely isn't too much left to control.
