ADEN Dec 12 (Reuters) - At least 16 prisoners, including members of al Qaeda, escaped from a prison in the southern Yemeni city of Aden on Monday, Yemeni officials said.
A security official in the south of the country, where Islamist fighters have seized chunks of an entire province, said detainees fled by digging a tunnel leading beyond the prison's walls. Sixteen were at large, another local official said.
It was the second major jailbreak involving al Qaeda members since June, when dozens of al Qaeda militants escaped from a jail in another city, Mukalla.
