Taliban trick alters prisoner release form
March 4 , 2014
It was easy for a group of Taliban fighters to get out of the heavily secured Sarposa prison. Security officials mentioned that the prisoners managed to escape after having a release form altered. The form was supposed to release 18 prisoners but 28 of them were freed instead.
"This is humiliating,"a member of Kandahar's provincial council said. The Taliban mentioned that it freed more than 23 fighters with their clever tricks. Investigations reveal that the Talban had plenty of help since 11 prison officials who left with the fighters haven't been found since.
Last month, 65 suspected militants were freed from another prison despite the fact that US forces strongly objected the idea.
