ADEN - At least 14 prisoners, including members of al-Qaida, escaped from a prison in the southern Yemeni city of Aden on Monday, a Yemeni security official said.

The official in the south of the country, where Islamist fighters have seized chunks of an entire province, said the detainees had managed to flee by digging a tunnel leading beyond the prison's walls.
