Canada will help rebuild a prison in the southern Afghan province of Kandahar following a mass jailbreak at the site by Taliban militants, the foreign ministry said. "Canada has contributed to both infrastructure and training" at the Sarpoza Prison in Kandahar City, read a foreign ministry statement attributed to Elissa Golberg, Canada's representative in Kandahar province. "We will continue to do so, in keeping with the Government of Canada's priorities for Afghanistan announced by (Foreign) Minister (David) Emerson," read the statement. Afghan authorities said 886 prisoners fled, more than 380 of whom were Taliban. NATO's International Security Assistance Force said more than 1,100 prisoners fled, while the Taliban militia said that 400 of its own fighters escaped. The statement added: "Reports of there being two breaches are incorrect -- there was one breach at the front of the prison, though it was of a tremendous scale."
