`Yemen Hunts 19 Suspected Al-Qaeda Members after Sanaa Jailbreak’

#AceWorldNews says that Yemeni security forces were on Friday hunting down 29 inmates, including 19 suspected Al-Qaeda members, who broke out of jail in the capital, Sanaa, AFP reported.

The Interior Ministry said 29 people convicted “of various terrorist and criminal charges” escaped when a blast breached the facility’s outer wall Thursday.

The two-pronged assault began when an explosives-laden vehicle slammed into the jail’s eastern gate just after sunset. Seven members of the security forces were reportedly killed and four wounded in the assault.
