An armed gang has attacked a prison in Haiti freeing an unconfirmed number of inmates.

The Croix-des-Bouquets jail held more than 800 prisoners before yesterday's attack.

The action caused panic in the area around the capital Port-au-Prince where the prison is located.

Among those who escaped is Clifford Brandt, who comes from a wealthy Haitian family and faces kidnapping charges.

Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe visited the area after the raid but made no comments.
