Egypt: Inmates Attempt to Escape from Suez Prison


Hundreds of inmates at the Ataka prison in the Egyptian city of Suez tried on Monday to escape and were arrested by Egyptian security forces.

The prisoners took advantage of the ongoing riots in the city and started a fire that began to burn down the facility. Security forces were able to put out the fire and prevent their escape.
