2000 Inmates Riot in Kabul

An uprising at Afghanistan's main high-security jail has spread to a second block, and now involves nearly 2,000 prisoners, the BBC has learned.
Inmates took control of a wing of the jail, Kabul's Pul-e-Charkhi, overnight.
Sources have told the BBC seven people have been killed, although top Afghan officials have denied any deaths.
