BY TRACY PFEIFFER ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy Afghan security forces are scrambling to save face after hundreds of Taliban fighters escaped in an elaborate prison break scheme -- without any guards noticing. REPORTER, VOICE OVER: “More than 470 Afghan prisoners have broken out of jail through an escape tunnel dug by Taliban insurgents underneath the prison walls. The breakout happened at Kandahar prison, which is meant to be one of the country’s highest-security jails. A Taliban spokesman said the tunnel had taken nearly five months to complete.” (euronews) While Afghan officials put the number of escapees around 470, the Taliban says they sprung about 540. Reports indicate about a dozen prisoners have been re-captured since the nighttime escape. The incident has drawn harsh criticism of Afghan security forces and the government itself. A former member of the Parliament in Kandahar tells The Christian Science Monitor... “I would call this a shameful incident for the Afghan government … It is impossible for the Taliban to get 500 men out of prison without anyone’s help. I believe there are some people from the prison or the government who gave the Taliban support. ... It’s now clear to everyone how corrupt the government is.” Adding to concern -- This is the second time this particular prison has had a massive break out. In 2008, somewhere around 1,000 prisoners escaped after the Taliban blew up the prison gates -- and a reporter for the BBC says, the consequences of that prison break will likely repeat in this instance. REPORTER: “We saw an upsurge in violence in Kandahar City and in the surrounding area. We just spent a week down there, just outside the city. American forces there were saying they’ve made a lot of progress in pushing the Taliban back. Well, that area is going to be all the more difficult for them because of those escapees.” Most reports indicate the escapees were mid-level commanders and foot soldiers -- but a writer for the Guardian says, don’t let that fool you -- they’re still very important members of the Taliban. “Two problems that the Taliban upper command has always wrestled with is the direction and the discipline of its fragmented and often dispersed fighting force. A loss of mid-level leadership makes those problems much more intractable as there is no one to pass on broad instructions or corral the often disorganised fighters on the ground.” Finally, a producer for Al Jazeera says the jailbreak is particularly bad on a strategic level, as most of the freed fighters are from an area where NATO forces hoped to make a lot of progress this year. QAIS AZIMY, KABUL PRODUCER: “This jail was not only for Kandahar, it was for the provinces in the South. And also, Afghan forces and NATO forces this year -- they are focusing in the south of Afghanistan … They were expecting lots of fighters in this area. And if Taliban could manage to break this jail and take their fighters out of the jail, it is the first success of this year for the Taliban.” 'Like' Newsy on Facebook for updates in your news feed Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

*******www.surviveanydisaster.way.to - MAD HAT NEWS! Credits to BBC. Twelve Afghan policemen and a child have been killed in a suicide attack in the southern Afghan city of Lashkar Gah, officials say. The attacker targeted the gate of the police headquarters in the city, the capital of Helmand province. The Taliban said it had carried out the attack, which also wounded 12 people. Responsibility for Lashkar Gah was recently handed to Afghan forces as part of a plan to return all security to local forces by the end of 2014. The attack reportedly targeted a joint Afghan police and army patrol at the compound. Officials said that, in addition to those killed, 10 policemen and two civilians were injured.
