Dozens Dead in Iraq Prison Break

At least 10 Iraqi policemen and 30 prisoners were killed late on Friday as dozens of inmates escaped from a prison holding 300 people charged with acts of terrorism, a security official said Saturday. It was not clear if any high-profile prisoners were held in the prison or escaped from the facility in Al-Khalis, about 80km northeast of Baghdad, Reuters reported.
