Interpol has issued a global alert asking member countries to help track hundreds of terrorism suspects who escaped in a wave of prison breaks over the past month ? including in Iraq, Pakistan and Libya ? and is requesting assistance in determining whether any of the operations ?are coordinated or linked.?
Three suicide bombers tried to attack the Indian consulate in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad, sparking a shootout with guards on a bustling downtown street that left at least nine civilians dead, official said.
The threat of a terrorist attack led to the weekend closure of 21 U.S. embassies and consulates in the Muslim world and a global travel warning to Americans, the first such alert since an announcement before the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 strikes.
