Almost 400 prisoners have escaped from a Pakistani jail after it was attacked by militants, officials said.
Dozens of Islamist militants armed with guns and rocket-propelled grenades carried out the attack on the prison, in north-west Pakistan, Reuters reports.
Some of the freed inmates were themselves militants, reports suggest.
The jail lies close to the town of Bannu, which borders Pakistan's volatile tribal region.----
