Pakistan is investigating possible al-Qaeda involvement in a major jailbreak in the country's militant-plagued northwest that freed nearly 250 prisoners, security officials said yesterday.
Dozens of heavily-armed militants last week stormed a prison in Dera Ismail Khan, close to Pakistan's lawless tribal areas on the Afghan border, in a well-coordinated assault that left 13 dead.
The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility. But on Saturday global police agency Interpol said it suspected al-Qaeda was involved in the raid and in other prison breaks in eight countries, including Iraq and Libya.
