Global Security Alert after Al-Qaeda Prison Escapes

Interpol says the prison escapes have taken place in nine Interpol member countries over the past month, including Iraq, Libya and Pakistan.

Interpol says the prison escapes have taken place in nine Interpol member countries over the past month, including Iraq, Libya and Pakistan.

The international police organization Interpol has issued a global security alert, urging increased vigilance for terrorist activity, following a suspected al-Qaeda connection to prison breaks in Iraq, Libya and Pakistan, among others, AP reported.

Interpol says the prison escapes have taken place in nine Interpol member countries over the past month. The organization is requesting its 190 member countries’ assistance in figuring out whether such events are indeed linked.

The full statement from Interpol’s alert reads:

Following a series of prison escapes across nine INTERPOL member countries in the past month alone, including in Iraq, Libya and Pakistan, the INTERPOL General Secretariat headquarters has issued a global security alert advising increased vigilance.

With suspected Al Qaeda involvement in several of the breakouts which led to the escape of hundreds of terrorists and other criminals, the INTERPOL alert requests the Organization’s 190 member countries’ assistance in order to determine whether any of these recent events are coordinated or linked.

INTERPOL is asking its member countries to closely follow and swiftly process any information linked to these events and the escaped prisoners. They are also requested to alert the relevant member country and INTERPOL General Secretariat headquarters if any escaped terrorist is located or intelligence developed which could help prevent another terrorist attack.

Staff at INTERPOL’s 24-hour Command and Coordination Centre and other specialized units are also prioritizing all information and intelligence in relation to the breakouts or terrorist plots in order to immediately inform relevant member countries of any updates.

August is the anniversary of violent terrorist incidents in Mumbai, India and Gluboky, Russia as well as in Jakarta, Indonesia. This week also marks the 15th anniversary of the US Embassy bombings in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania in which more than 200 mostly African citizens were killed and 4,000 others injured.

In recent years, terrorist attacks focusing on diplomatic facilities in Afghanistan, Greece, India, Kenya, Libya, Pakistan, Peru, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tanzania, Turkey and Yemen have also resulted in hundreds of casualties of all nationalities.

The US State Department has also issued a global travel alert in response to credible intelligence suggesting that Al-Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks between now and 31 August, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa. In addition to the US authorities announcing the one-day closure of more than 20 diplomatic missions on Sunday 4 August, the UK Foreign Office has also confirmed the closure of the British embassy in Yemen on 4 and 5 August.

    INTERPOL has issued a global security alert in response to the multiple Al-Quaeda prison breaks that have occurred over the last month. How terrifying! Maybe now the public will stop debating privacy concerns and the NSA surveillance scandal and instead be grateful the US Government has a system in place to monitor communications worldwide and stop these terrorists. Like 9/11, this should bring us all together to fight the War on Terrorism.

  2. Anonymous says:

    These are hardly real prison escapes. This looks more and more like the prisoners were let go. I can see one prison escape in one country, but so many countries…that's hard to imagine.

  3. Anonymous says:

    In the near tomorrow will be folding the entire world under Communist rule or Putin's rule.

  4. Either you work for the government or you are stupid. Do you realize how much of our blood was spilled to obtain these right and you want to piss them away
