An al-Qaida operative sentenced to death for plotting the
USS Cole bombing that killed 17 sailors in 2000 was among a group of convicts who escaped from a Yemen prison last week, Interpol said Sunday in issuing a global security alert.
The convicts escaped via a 140-yard-long tunnel "dug by the prisoners and coconspirators outside," Interpol said. The Yemeni official said the prison was at the central headquarters of the country's military intelligence services in a building in the center of the capital.
That sure is some "intelligence service" they have there in Yemen.
Unless... nah, it couldn't be... I don't suppose they WANTED these guys to escape, did they?
