Interpol global alert for al Qaeda prison escapees

The international police agency raised the alert Saturday following "the escape of hundreds of terrorists and other criminals" in the past month, including jailbreaks from Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison and the Taji prison near Baghdad. The alert to Interpol’s 190 member states comes a day after an unusual US global alert to American citizens that al Qaeda and its affiliates are planning terrorist attacks in the Middle East and North Africa in August, possibly from the Arabian Peninsula, specifically Yemen, and the order to 21 US missions to stay closed tomorrow.
