Officials in northern Afghanistan say a prison breakout has resulted in the death of three prisoners.

Authorities in Sar-e Pol province say Taliban members were among the more than a dozen inmates who escaped when a hole was blown into the prison wall Thursday night.

Officials say the dead inmates were killed by prison guards.

The Afghan Islamic Press says the Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack.
