Hundreds of convicts, including senior members of al Qaeda, broke out of Iraq's Abu Ghraib jail as comrades launched a military-style assault to free them, authorities said on Monday.

The deadly raid on the high-security jail happened as Sunni Muslim militants are re-gaining momentum in their insurgency against the Shi'ite-led government that came to power after the U.S. invasion to oust Saddam Hussein.

Suicide bombers drove cars packed with explosives to the gates of the prison on the outskirts of Baghdad on Sunday night and blasted their way into the compound, while gunmen attacked guards with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades.

Other militants took up positions near the main road, fighting off security reinforcements sent from Baghdad as several militants wearing suicide vests entered the prison on foot to help free the inmates.

Ten policemen and four militants were killed in the ensuing clashes, which continued until Monday morning, when military helicopters arrived, helping to regain control.

By that time, hundreds of inmates had succeeded in fleeing Abu Ghraib, the prison made notorious a decade ago by photographs showing abuse of prisoners by U.S. soldiers.


As they made it to freedom, senior Al Queda operatives stamped each mans index finger with purple ink so he couldn't claim to have escaped twice. I hope they all hummed the Great Escape theme.

Cool, real life Arkham Asylum. Well, Blackgate Penitentiary, but no one would get that reference as easily.

This is why Iraq can't have nice stuff.

I'd have a hard time justifying suicide martyrdom in order to bust out some comrades.

Not really, that place is pretty much a desert and with no shade, would you really want to park your car there?

That really drives home your place on the value scale, huh?

Every once in a while, when I feel like giving myself a good mental beating, I try and imagine the world without ice cream. It's not a happy place.

Dead Paradise or Living Prison.

Which would you choose?

I'd survive that, now a world without beer... that would be horrific.
