TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — Tunisia's state news agency says 49 inmates broke out of jail in a southern coastal town after staging a prison uprising to escape.
Monday's report quoted a security official saying police and soldiers are searching the area around the city of Gabes and have recaptured 13 inmates.
The escape took place in the early hours of the morning, the report said, adding that the prisoners were mostly young people and common criminals.
Inmates broke out of the same prison in 2011 during the month-long uprising that overthrew Tunisia's president and kicked off the Arab Spring.
