Afghan security forces retake control of Jalalabad prison

Afghan forces say they have retaken prison after at least 29 were killed in hours-long battle following ISIL-claimed attack on the facility.

    Hundreds of prisoners are on the run after gunmen, affiliated with ISIL (ISIS), earlier stormed a prison in Jalalabad.

    Authorities have regained control, but only after at least 30 people were killed, including several of the assailants.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Chappelle reports.
