Eighteen people, including an al Qaeda leader and a senior Iraqi counter-terrorism official, died in a battle between inmates and security officers

"During a jailbreak attempt in Baghdad on Sunday, security officials said, Huthaifa al-Batawi, known as al Qaeda's "Emir of Baghdad" and accused of a deadly attack on a Catholic church, was killed along with 10 other senior al Qaeda militants, said Baghdad's security spokesman Major-General Qassim al-Moussawi.


"Security forces and guards responded to the jail of the counter-terrorism department and killed 11 terrorist-prisoners ... including Huthaifa al-Batawi, the Emir of Baghdad, who was in charge of planning the church attack," Moussawi said.


Moussawi said seven security officers -- including Brigadier Muaid Mahdi, head of investigations at the counter-terrorism unit -- were killed in the skirmish and one other was wounded."

"The prisoners then entered Saleh's office and shot him along with another officer in the room, the AP reported"

I was in the next room close to Brigadier Muaeid's room and I heard shots fired and screams in the corridor. I opened the door and saw about four Al Qaeda detainees moving around and I closed the door back immediately," Saleh's bodyguard, Jawad Kadhum, told the AP.


"Then I heard one of them saying 'This is the director's room,' and I heard a flurry of gunshots," he said, oficials told the AP that the prisoners appeared to have planned their escape. After killing Saleh, they seized a car and tried to drive out of the compound when a guard opened fire with a machine gun, killing them, an official told the AP.


Security forces investigating the attempted prison break Sunday said the detainees should have been restrained."

Kandahar assaults underscore vulnerabilities in Afghan war effort

"Taliban attacks continued for a second day in Kandahar, despite a yearlong effort by NATO and Afghan forces to drive the Taliban out of the southern province.


The Taliban continued their assault on government offices in Kandahar for the second day Sunday, after militants launched attacks in their former stronghold Saturday as part of the start of the group’s spring offensive.


The attacks across the city come after a yearlong campaign by NATO and Afghan forces to drive the Taliban out of Kandahar Province and southern Afghanistan.


They show that despite those efforts, the city is still vulnerable to a widespread Taliban assault


The Taliban declared the start of their annual spring offensive last week, and the attack on Kandahar was the first major operation since.


The assault, says the AP, “cast doubt on the effectiveness of a yearlong campaign to secure Afghanistan's south and Kandahar in particular.”
