Greece Trikala prison: Bombs and Guns Used In Jailbreak to Free 11 Albanian Prisoners

Gunmen used "very heavy weapons" to attack a prison in Greece and free 11 inmates.

Two guards were injured as they attempted to fight off the six attackers, who turned the jail perimeter into a "battlefield".

Guns, grenades, a van and a pickup truck were used in the breakout at 8.30pm local time on Friday.

It kicked off a night-long standoff between police and the remaining prisoners at the facility near the town of Trikala, 200 miles northwest of Athens.
