INTERPOL Press Release

LYON, France - An international security alert, or Orange Notice, has been issued by INTERPOL at the request of its National Central Bureau (NCB) in Kabul for 417 dangerous prisoners, including members of the Taliban, who escaped from an Afghan prison last month.

During the night of 24 April, the Taliban broke out the prisoners from the Sarposa prison in Kandahar through a tunnel constructed from outside the prison perimeter fence into the prison interior. INTERPOL said the jailbreak constituted a major threat to global security.

Following the escape, information on the fugitive prisoners was provided through an already existing programme between INTERPOL's General Secretariat headquarters in Lyon and its National Central Bureau in Washington which provides for information-sharing on terrorism-related issues.[More]
