Beardy BS: 'Taliban flee Afghan jail' (20) BS: 'Taliban flee Afghan jail' 15 Oct 03


I thought there may have been some comment on this incident but total silence so maybe I was the only one to read this below.

From 'The Independent on Sunday' 12 October 2003, Page 2
Taliban flee Afghan jail.
Forty one Taliban prisoners, including at least five leaders of the old regime, were reported to have escaped yesterday. Officials say they removed 15 truckloads of soil to tunnel nine metres in Kandahar, Afghanistan.

Well that was it in its entirety. Has this just been dismissed as unimportant? How for gods sake can prisoners remove 15 truckloads of soil? In the old 2WW films they put the soil in their trouser legs, how big are trousers in Afghanistan? How can you not notice this extra soil appearing in a prison?

Was this reported in the US?

Any comments welcome.
