France: Top French convict pulls off prison break in spectacular helicopter escape

Notorious French criminal Redoine Faid, who was once France's most-wanted man, made a dramatic helicopter escape from Reau prison in the Paris region on Sunday, for the second time in just over five years. Faid reportedly made his prison break at around 11:30am (10:30 GMT). The 46-year old French-Algerian convict is believed to have been aided by several heavily armed accomplices, who used a... Еще helicopter to fly him out of prison. The helicopter then reportedly flew to the capital's Gonesse area, where it was discovered by police. This is Faid's second prison break. In 2013, Faid escaped from prison after taking four guards hostage and using dynamite to blow several doors off. He was arrested at a hotel six weeks later. Faid was serving a 25-year sentence for a failed 2010 robbery, during which a police officer was killed. Mandatory credit: ACTU Penitentiaire
