Afghan and foreign troops have launched a massive manhunt to recapture hundreds of prisoners, including suspected Taliban militants, who escaped a central prison in southern Afghanistan after a raid by Taliban insurgents on Friday night. Authorities say an investigation into the incident is underway and some prison officials are also being questioned to see if they had played any role. In another development, U.S military officials say that a roadside bomb explosion left four soldiers from the US-led coaltion dead in western Afghanistan.

 

阿富汗和联军部队发动大规模搜捕行动,争取将数百名越狱的囚犯抓捕归案,其中包括塔利班激进分子嫌疑人。塔利班暴乱分子星期五晚上突袭阿富汗南部一所中心监狱,这些人趁势逃走。有关当局说,目前正在对这次事件进行调查。一些监狱官员也在接受问讯,以确定他们是否参与了这起事件。在其它方面,美国军方官员说,在阿富汗西部地区,以美国为首的联军部队遭遇路边炸弹袭击,有4名军人阵亡。

A Taliban spokesman told reporters by telephone from an undisclosed location that 30 insurgents and two suicide bombers took part in the Friday night attack on the prison in the southern city of Kandahar.

 

塔利班一位发言人在一个没有透露的地点通过电话告诉媒体说,大约30名激进分子和两名自杀炸弹杀手参加了星期五晚间对阿富汗南部城市坎大哈那所监狱的袭击行动。

The commando-style assault began with a fuel tanker loaded with explosives hitting the main gate while another suicide bomber blew up the back wall of the facility. The powerful explosions are said to have instantly killed at least 15 security guards and wounded many others.

 

这次袭击很像是特种部队的突袭行动。首先是一辆装满炸药的油罐车撞开监狱大门,同时一名自杀炸弹杀手炸开监狱后墙。据说,巨大的爆炸当场炸死至少15名狱警,并造成多人受伤。

Afghan Deputy Justice Minister Mohammad Qasim Hashimzai says that heavily armed Taliban militants then stormed the compound and helped prisoners escape.

 

阿富汗司法部副部长哈希姆扎伊说,全副武装的塔利班激进分子随后冲进监狱,帮助囚犯逃离。

"Now when this happened, and of course there were some casualties in the beginning and of course when the ISAF forces and the government forces were informed about that, they blocked the roads leading to the prison, and outside of it, and other main roads searching the vehicles to see if they can re-capture those who managed to escape," he said.

 

他说:“事件发生以后,当然在一开始有一些伤亡。当然,驻阿富汗国际安全救援部队和阿富汗政府军得到消息以后,马上封锁了通往监狱的道路、监狱外边的道路、以及其它一些主要道路,搜查车辆,看看是否能够抓住那些越狱的人。”

Afghan officials say that there were nearly 1,200 prisoners, including up to 400 suspected Taliban militants, before the attack, and most of them are said to have been freed by the attackers.

 

阿富汗官员说,在袭击发生前,这个监狱大约关押着1200个人,包括400名塔利班激进分子嫌疑人。据说,大部分囚犯被袭击者放走。

The jailbreak is being described as a major security breach and has increased security concerns for both the government and foreign forces particularly in southern Afghanistan, where Taliban militants have carried out most of their subversive activities in the past two years.

 

有关方面说,这次监狱被攻陷是一次重大安全失误,加剧了阿富汗政府,特别是驻扎在南部地区的外国军队对安全局势的担忧。过去两年来,塔利班激进分子的大部分颠覆活动都是在南部地区进行的。

Under a program agreed to last year to transfer all local prisoners from U.S detention, the U.S. military has handed over an unspecified number of suspected Taliban fighters to Afghan custody.

 

根据去年达成的一项移交当地囚犯的计划,美国军方向阿富汗政府移交了一批塔利班战斗人员嫌疑人。

Meanwhile, a roadside bomb exploded near a U.S military vehicle on Saturday killing four American soldiers. A U.S military spokesman says the attack happened in western Farah province and targeted American personnel helping train Afghanistan's police force.

 

在其它消息方面,星期六,一辆美军军车遭遇路边炸弹袭击,4名美国军人丧生。美军发言人说,袭击发生在西部的法拉省,目标是那些帮助训练阿富汗警察的美方人员。

The violence and jailbreak came a day after international donors at a conference in Paris pledged more than $20 billion for Afghanistan.

 

在这些暴力事件和监狱遭袭击的前一天,国际捐助者在巴黎举行会议,保证向阿富汗提供200多亿美元援助。
