NATO admits Afghan jail attack a tactical success for Taliban
NATO has admitted that Taliban militants who launched a suicide attack on a prison in the Afghan city of Kandahar, allowing hundreds of inmates to escape, have scored a tactical success.
NATO says more than eleven hundred prisoners escaped after militants blew up a truck at the main gate of the jail.
But the spokesman for NATO forces in Afghanistan, General Carlos Branco, says it’s an isolated incident.
He says it is important not to overreact and exaggerate the impact of the incident until an assessment is made.
