Interpol issues global alert for Taliban fugitives

The France-based international police agency says it has issued a so-called Orange Notice for the fugitives who escaped the Sarposa prison in Kandahar on April 24.

Authorities in Afghanistan had said more than 480 inmates escaped the jail through a tunnel dug over a matter of months.

It wasn't immediately clear why Interpol's alert concerned a smaller number of fugitives.
The Orange Notice means information on the escapees will be shared among all of Interpol's 188 member countries.
