Prison break in Tunisia; at least 3 dozen at large

At least 49 inmates broke out of a prison in Tunisia on Sunday night, the country's state-run Tunis Afrique Presse reported.

Security forces have detained 13 of the escapees, according to the report, which cited a security source.

The incident occurred in Gabes, in the southeastern part of the North African country. It is the latest mass prison break in the turbulent Muslim world.
