Egyptian security forces reported on Sunday that dozens of bodies were discovered near a prison in Cairo.

Egyptian security officials said Sunday that thousands of inmates have escaped prisons across Egypt, including one that housed Muslim terrorists northwest of Cairo.

The developments add to the chaos engulfing Egypt as anti-government protests continue. The officials said the prisoners escaped overnight from at least four jails after starting fires and clashing with guards.
