At least 39 people died and 50 others sustained injuries after a suicide bomber detonated explosives in a car at the main entrance to a prison in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, on Sunday. Other armed militants stormed inside the facility and opened fire. Afghan security forces regained control of the prison by Monday afternoon and recaptured about 1,000 prisoners who escaped during the attack, said Attaullah Khogyani, the provincial governor’s spokesman.
