Almotamar.net - President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi on Saturday slated the security performance of the security authorities, after the prison break occurred on Thursday in Sana'a central prison.
Twenty-nine prisoners, including 19 linked to terrorism escaped during the attack that also led to killing seven guards and policemen and injuring four others.
"Terrorist attacks would not reach such extent, if the security performance is at the required level," Hadi said during his meeting with senior security officials during a surprise visit to the Interior Ministry.
He stressed the need to raise the readiness, particularly in the capital, Sana'a. "Security is an absolute priority in a state and government structure. Every official must be able to perform his security duties flawlessly."
The President urged the Ministry's officials to carry out a security map based on 12 security jurisdiction areas in the capital within one month.
Later, Hadi coupled with Interior Minister and heads of the various security services made a visit to the headquarters of the central prison to be briefed on the damage resulted by the attack and the security response made then.
The prison break was implemented in a coordinated attack carried out by one group of the attackers, who detonated a car bomb as others were opening fire and firing RPG shells at the facility to cover the break operation.
The car bomb explosion caused a hole in the prisons wall through which the 29 prisoners fled, while attackers covered the escape.
