Yemeni policemen stand guard as workers rebuild the central prison’s outer wall on February 14, 2014 in the capital Sanaa, a day after a deadly assault during which 29 inmates, including 19 suspected Al-Qaeda members, broke out of jail. Yemeni security forces are trying to track down the fugitives convicted “of various terrorist and criminal charges” who escaped when a blast breached the facility’s outer wall.
