Nearly 400 prisoners have escaped from a prison in the Libyan capital Tripoli during fights between the rival militias in that area. Last week the violence in Tripoli has intensified as the Tripoli revolutionary brigade was attacked by a coalition of the militias. Nearly 100 people have been injured and 39 have been dead apart from the jailbreak. Police denied to reveal the offences that were committed by the inmates.
