Two prisoners and a child were killed Sunday during an attempted prison break in southern Afghanistan, a top police official said.
According to AP, the chief of police for Zabul province in southeastern Afghanistan, Ghulam Saki Roghlewanai, said some explosives had been placed earlier near a prison wall. He said the explosion was triggered by a child although it wasn't clear whether the child did it intentionally.
After the explosion two Taliban prisoners inside tried to grab the weapons of the police guards, he said. The police managed to shoot and kill the two Taliban prisoners but two officers were also wounded in the incident, Roghlewanai said.
'It was a foiled prison break from the Taliban side. They were trying to get hold of prisoners from inside,' he said.
