    At least 15 guards were killed during a Talibans attack in Kandahar prison where more than 1.000 prisoners escaped. The prisoners opened a hole in the prisons wall using a trapped car. "We found the bodies of 15 guards. There may be other dead too", the brother of the Afghanistan president who is leading in Kandahar province stated. Deputy Minister of justice can not confirm the exact numbers of dead guards as investigations are in progress. The attack was one of the most impressive attacks launched by Taliban. Firstly a car full of explosives exploded opening a hole in the wall and then armed Taliban barged into the prison and freed as many prisoners as possible.
