In a sign of ongoing chaos, 30 suspects in a detention center in the Nile Delta city of Belbeis escaped Tuesday, apparently assisted by relatives and armed men.
Security officials said the suspects were being moved to another prison when thugs wielding guns and swords began firing in the air to create chaos. Then the suspects broke out of their cells and escaped into waiting vehicles.
Some 25,000 prisoners, including hardened criminals and drug barons, escaped from prisons during the popular uprising. About 13,000 have been recaptured or have surrendered voluntarily.
Attacks on police stations freed another 25,000 suspects, most of whom remain at large, according to security officials.
