The Abu Ghraib prison, located on the outskirts of Baghdad in Iraq, has become infamous as the site of an abuse scandal by U.S. soldiers. But a recent prison-break attempt has brought it back to the spotlight after prisoners were caught attempting to tunnel out of their hell-hole by using a frying pan.

According to Reuters, a spokesman for the justice ministry said that 11 'dangerous prisoners' and suspected Al Qaeda members, had dug down three metres and had tunneled along 20 metres using a frying pan and part of a ceiling fan before they were discovered.

They had even fashioned breathing apparatus from soft-drink cans stuck end to end, but were no match for the warders who proceeded to flood the tunnel with hundreds of gallons of water to flush them out. But you have to applaud these guys for their sheer ingenuity.
