4 Marines Die in Afghanistan; 870 Inmates Escape
The AP reports: About 870 prisoners escaped during a Taliban bomb and rocket attack on the main prison in southern Afghanistan that knocked down the front gate and demolished a prison floor, Afghan officials said Saturday. And in western Afghanistan on Saturday, a roadside bomb exploded near a US military vehicle, killing four Americans in the deadliest attack against US troops in the country this year, officials said. One other American was wounded in the attack.

There were more than 4 guards at the prison - the NY Times says 15 guards were killed and other guards managed to keep 200 other prisoners from getting out.

What I don't understand is how were 4 soldiers guarding 870 prisoners? There's got to be a part of this story we aren't getting.

This is horrible! I can't believe no one has commented on this. "Afghan officials warned that the Taliban essentially boosted its force by 400 fighters because of the prison break" Also the rate of American's killed is now more in Afghanistan than in Iraq.
