Interpol issues world-wide alert on Afghan jailbreak

Orange Notice has been issued for the fugitives who escaped an Afghan jail.

Paris: Interpol has issued a worldwide alert for 417 fugitives of an Afghan jailbreak, including Taliban, considered "a major threat to global security”.

The France-based international police agency says it has issued a so-called Orange Notice for the fugitives who escaped the Sarposa prison in Kandahar on April 24.

Authorities in Afghanistan had said more than 480 inmates escaped the jail through a tunnel dug over a matter of months.

It wasn`t immediately clear why Interpol`s alert concerned a smaller number of fugitives.

The Orange Notice means information on the escapees will be shared among all of Interpol`s 188 member countries.
