Sudan boycots hesitant Ethiopian mega-dam talks


BEIRUT: Nearly 70 inmates escaped from a prison in Lebanon on Saturday after breaking cell doors and attacking prison guards, police said.
According to a police statement, five of the escaped detainees died when a car they stole while fleeing crashed into a tree in a subsequent police chase.
The massive escape of 69 prisoners took place in a prison in Baabda, a suburb of the Lebanese capital Beirut. Police said so far 15 detainees have been re-arrested and four of the escaped prisoners have surrendered.
Security forces cordoned off the area around the prison and were conducting a manhunt for the remaining prisoners. An investigation into the incident is underway, according to the police statement.
