Armed militants have attacked a prison in the Iraqi city of Tikrit, killing at least 12 guards and freeing about 90 inmates, officials have told the BBC.
They say a suicide bomber detonated a car bomb at the gates of Tasfirat prison and clashes between militants and security guards followed.
Some of the escaped inmates were reportedly al-Qaeda members.
The prison was later retaken from the gunmen by security forces, reports say. A curfew is now in place in the area.

Only when you have a succesion of damn fools in the White House, one worse than the one before him.
In the Middle East, as long as Islam is allowed to exist, you can ONLY have one of three governmental alternatives:
Anarchy, Fantical Theocracies, or Military Dictatorships.
Take your pick.
The best alternative is the last as long as the dictator is beneficial to us.
If you expect anything else, you’re a damned fool, but then you have great company - this President and his three predecessors.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
You summed it up nicely.
That’s true. They acted out of stupidity and ignorance.
He acts out of deliberate design - the First Anti-American
(Actually anti-western) President.
Ask this guy.
Thank goodness for the Atlantic and pacific oceans.
Their citizens our unable or unwilling to fend for themselves.and we can not afford a never ending war.
I would take the chance and use the big guns but thats just me.
The video or a negotiation. Let’s see thats 44 terrorists still missing from Iraq prison, 132 could be terrorists from a Mexican prison and 55 terrorists from Club Gitmo. Al Qaeda is getting everything they asked for. Hmmm.
We lost Iraq the very moment it turned into a nation building project. The Islamic culture doesn't allow freedom and rights. As well freedom and rights must be earned just as our freedoms and rights were won. There has to be something there to build on. It's not there in that culture as a whole.
Things will not improve in Iraq and we will have once again created a far bigger threat than the one that existed. Our best policy should have been to have gotten Iraq and Iran back to fighting each other and stayed the heck out of it.
