UK: Two terror suspects on the run after escape

October 16, 2006 19:54

Two suspected terrorists being held under Britain's contentious control order powers have escaped and are on the run, officials said Monday. A British man, who has not been identified, is thought to have fled through a window of mental health unit in London two weeks ago and is being sought by police. He had been accused by British authorities of attempting to travel to Iraq to fight alongside insurgents and was being held on a control order - a form of curfew and other measures similar to house arrest. Officials said a second suspect was also on the run, but did not provide details of the circumstances of his escape from control order custody.
