    Scores of prisoners, possibly in their thousands, have managed to escape from Egyptian jails in the chaos caused by mass protests across the country.

    Among those escaped prisoners are some Palestinians from the Gaza Strip.

    Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston speaks to one of the escapees - a member of the Army of Islam. He is back in Gaza after spending three years at a prison in Cairo.
