July 26: Mass jailbreak from Iraq's Abu Ghraib: This one involved suicide bomber cars, gunmen, mortars.
Iraqi officials say that some 400 al-Qaeda fighters are still at large over this week’s high-profile jailbreak from Abu Ghraib. Though some may stay in Iraq, analysts say the smart money is on most of them going to Syria to join the rebellion there.
