More than ten Prisoners on Friday escaped from a jail in the port town of Bosaso, northeastern Somalia.

The inmates, who are convicted pirates managed to escape in the morning hours, but most them have been captured by the Custodian corps and returned to the Jail.

One of the Prison guards told Horseed Media that investigations are under way on how they managed to escape from the prison which is heavily guarded. The total of the escaped prisoners have been confirmed to be 15.

Police are hunting for the other two prisoners, who are being thought to be hiding in the town.

Last year, three people including the deputy commander of the corps in the Prison were killed after unknown gunmen carried a deadly attacked at the Prison.

Puntland authorities at that time accused the Somali terrorist group al-Shabab for being responsible for the attack.
