[July 31, 2017]    (Reuters) - Alabama authorities are searching for two escaped prisoners, one of whom was charged with attempted murder, after a mass jailbreak involving 12 men, the local Sheriff's office said on Monday.


Ten of the 12 inmates, who escaped from Walker County Jail, were recaptured early on Monday, the office said on its Facebook page.

It posted photos of the two inmates still at large but it gave no details on when or how the escape took place.

The dozen escapees, all men aged 18 to 30, were imprisoned on charges including robbery, attempted murder and domestic violence.

Walker County is located northwest of Birmingham.
