Mass jail break in Libya

8:48 am on 28 July 2013

More than 1000 prisoners have escaped from a jail in the city of Benghazi in eastern Libya.

A security official said most of the escapers were facing serious charges.

Benghazi is one of the most unstable parts of post-revolution Libya.

Last year the US ambassador and three other Americans were killed there.
