    About 100 "very serious" prisoners have escaped from a jail on the British Virgin Islands in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. The convicts pose a "serious threat of the complete breakdown of law and order" on the islands, according to foreign minister Sir Alan Duncan. Speaking to MPs in the Commons, Sir Alan said marines from RFA Mounts Bay were used to "protect the Governor and everything else about law and order" after the storm hit on Friday. He also revealed that more than 500,000 British nationals have been in the path of the hurricane, and 997 British military personnel...

Judkins was serving part of a 27-month sentence for assault on a fellow inmate in federal prison. Authorities say the assault happened while Judkins was serving a 17½-year sentence for a 1999 bank robbery...

    An intelligent dog in Virginia managed to open multiple doors in an effort to escape from a veterinary hospital. Aquia-Garrisonville Animal Hospital shared a post stating a 10-year-old Great Pyrenees, named General, had managed to escape from the facility in Stafford at about 4 a.m. Monday morning. "Last night at 4 am, one of our boarders opened his run door, and managed to open the back door to the clinic to escape," the animal hospital said. "Stafford County animal control and sheriff deputies as well as staff members are looking for him." Video of the escape shows the clever canine...

    The iPhone 7 is, in Apple’s own words, “the best, most advanced iPhone ever.” It is not, however, impossible to hack. A teenage hacker has found a way to circumvent the phone’s security and restrictions, jailbreaking a brand new iPhone 7 running iOS 10, effectively taking full control of it and allowing him to install apps not approved by Apple. The 19-year-old hacker, who’s known online as qwertyoruiop but whose real name is Luca Todesco, took advantage of a series of bugs he found and exploited—and all it took him, he said, was just 24 hours.

    Oregon standoff figure Ryan Bundy was working on a plan to escape from a Portland jail, a prosecutor said. Assistant U.S. Attorney Geoff Barrow dropped the bombshell at a hearing Monday in which Bundy and his brother Ammon sought to be released as they await trial on charges stemming from the January takeover of a national wildlife refuge in Oregon. In trying to show Ryan Bundy is a flight risk, Barrow said deputies searching Bundy's cell in April found torn sheets braided together in a 12- to 15-foot rope, as well as extra towels, pillow cases and food.

    The Mexican government is warning of a strategy by drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to try to loosen the security measures at the maximum-security prison where he has already escaped once. National security commissioner Renato Sales told reporters Monday that recent statements made by an alleged daughter of Guzman to The Guardian newspaper that the government had betrayed him suggest a media strategy. …

Constable is just north of Malone, where Matt was shot Friday afternoon, and just south of the Canadian border. More than 1,300 federal, state and local officers were hunting for Sweat in the dense woods of Franklin County in the northern Adirondack Mountains. More...

    "You REALLY need to see what happens in the BACKGROUND as Fox News reports from outside a prison" (video) This video is making the rounds on Facebook for good reason. A sharp-eyed Fox News viewer caught some elicit goings-ons in the background as a reporter recorded from outside the upstate New York prison where two murderous inmates escaped. And that… is how you sneak in drugs, phones and other illegal stuff into a maximum state prison! Now do you think that’s possible without a guard helping out? Especially in the same prison where a guard is accused of helping two...

    Hello This is the first time I have posted so please forgive me if I have this topic in the wrong place. However, I had a questions and was hoping to receive some help. I am writing an article about gays who are against the homosexual agenda and thought I would include something in there about homosexuality and mental health. In the 1970s the APA changed the classification of homosexuality so it was no longer considered mental illness and many psychology and psychiatry organizations all over the world have followed. However, there was little basis at that time to think...

    By Ignatius Ssuuna Bujumbura — More than a week after he disappeared from a Bujumbura prison, Hussein Radjabu, a former rebel commander and powerful politician who enjoys significant popular support, has finally spoken. "I am planning to work with all Burundians [to bring about] a better politics that brings everybody on board, so that we have a better country," he told the Swahili service of Voice of America, putting paid to rumours that he might have been assassinated. His location was not disclosed. Rajdabu's 1 March jailbreak, which was well organised with outside assistance, adds to the uncertainty and tension...

    The FBI “most wanted” mugshot shows a tough, swarthy figure, his hair in a jailbird crew-cut. The $10 million price on his head, meanwhile, suggests that whoever released him from US custody four years ago may now be regretting it. Taken during his years as a detainee at the US-run Camp Bucca in southern Iraq, this is the only known photograph of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the new leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq and Syria. But while he may lack the photogenic qualities of his hero, Osama bin Laden, he is fast becoming the new poster-boy for the global jihadist movement....

    TRIPOLI, Libya More than 1,000 detainees escaped from a prison near the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi in a massive jailbreak Saturday, officials said, as protesters stormed political party offices in Libya's main cities. It wasn't immediately clear if the jailbreak at the Koyfiya prison came as part of the demonstrations. Protesters had massed across the country angry over the killing of an activist critical of the country's Muslim Brotherhood group. Gunmen outside of the prison fired into the air as inmates inside began setting fires, suggesting the jailbreak was preplanned, a Benghazi-based security official said. Those who escaped either...

    BAGHDAD — Iraq’s al-Qaeda affiliate claimed responsibility Tuesday for a jailbreak from the infamous Abu Ghraib prison that unleashed hundreds of militants into an already unstable region and boosted the group’s resurgent fortunes in Iraq and Syria. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant said in a statement that hundreds of prisoners were freed late Sunday in two coordinated assaults in which fighters used suicide bombs and mortars to storm the two top security prisons on Baghdad’s outskirts at Abu Ghraib and Taji. Both were once run by the U.S. military and housed the country’s most senior al-Qaeda detainees....

    MEDAN, Indonesia (AP) — Authorities were searching for scores of inmates, including terrorists, who escaped a crowded Indonesian prison that was still burning Friday after prisoners set fires and started a deadly riot at the facility in the nation's third-largest city. Thousands of policemen and soldiers are deployed around Tanjung Gusta prison to blockade roads linking Medan, the capital of North Sumatra, to other provinces were blockaded while fire brigades were battling the fires.

  • Why did Paula Broadwell think the CIA had taken prisoners in Benghazi?

    Washington Post ^ | November 12, 2012 | Max Fisher
    I can only imagine three possible explanations, all of which should be taken with many grains of salt: 1. Intelligence from faraway conflict areas can be hazy, and the story got honestly confused. Who knows how long or convoluted the chain of information was from Benghazi to Broadwell, whether or not it went through Petraeus, and it’s not hard to imagine a misstatement or mistake getting amplified. 2. She made it up or exaggerated some other piece of information, possibly including the name-dropping implication of Petraeus’s knowledge, either deliberately or mistakenly. 3. The story is true, and she let slip...

    This seems like a pretty good reason to push the David Petraeus-Paula Broadwell affair from a boys-club peccadillo into a resignation-worthy event. According to a transcript of a speech by Broadwell at the University of Denver the week before the election, Broadwell told an audience that the reason for the September 11 attack on the Benghazi consulate was neither a YouTube video nor a celebration of the anniversary of 9/11, but a prison escape for jihadis secretly held by the CIA in its nearby annex. Late last night, the CIA denied this report of a secret prison in its now-abandoned...
