Jack Idema: Prison Riots

There have been "riots" in the Afghan Prison in which Jack Idema and his guys are being (illegally) detained. It seems that a number of Taliban prisoners have taken over parts of the prison and are holding hostages.

Rottie has the full low-down, with the first part being here and the later, more serious, update is here.

In summary, it seems less like a riot and more like a full-on revolt and things are serious enough that Jack and others have been issued with weapons for their own safety. There are Northern Alliance troops in the prison, having stormed it a couple of days ago.

Naturally, the Beeb has almost no information...
