Ahram Online , Thursday 17 Aug 2017

Five prisoners escaped from a police station in Upper Egypt’s Qena governorate on Thursday, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported.

The suspects, who were arrested for drug trafficking and kidnapping for ransom, escaped by breaking the window of the cell where they were being held, a security source told Al-Ahram Arabic.

Qena's security directorate has ordered a security alert until the prisoners are apprehended.

In July, five prisoners escaped a police station in Upper Egypt’s Beni Suef and four prisoners escaped a police station in the Delta governorate of Daqahliya. The fugitives in both instances are still at large.
