Breaking News: Prisoners escape after attack on Pakistani Jail


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.----
