French gangster flees prison after helicopter escape

In April 2013, he broke out of a different jail by taking four prison guards hostage and using explosives hidden in tissue packets to blast his way through the gates.

Soon, Faid reportedly appeared in the courtyard, escorted by armed accomplices who had freed him from the prison visiting room, and boarded the aircraft, Reuters reported.

A man convicted of murder has escaped from prison using a helicopter, France's Justice Ministry said.

According to Agence France-Presse, Faid has been sentenced to serve 25 years "for masterminding a May 2010 botched armed robbery, in which a policewoman was killed".

Team Sky 'confident' Chris Froome will race in Tour de France
"Chris will ride the Tour", Froome's wife and representative Michelle Froome told Reuters on Sunday. But he is confident of being cleared of doping after an investigation.

He had been released on parole in 2009, after spending 10 years behind bars for a series of robberies.

Police nicknamed him "The Author" for two books he co-wrote about his delinquent youth.

Faid pulled off his latest escape at around 11:20 a.m. local time on Sunday, according to the BBC. A third gunmen had stayed in the helicopter with the pilot, who had been taken hostage.

Belloubet said police had launched a manhunt and described Faid as risky. They questioned Faid's brother on Sunday afternoon, AP reported.

Nervy Croatia beat dogged Denmark on penalties
Denmark also have happy memories of that World Cup , where they reached the quarter-finals, the nation's best ever performance. Croatia's captain and veteran playmaker Luka Modric played in that game, however, and was leading the team again on Sunday.

"Everything is being done to locate the fugitive", an official at the interior ministry said.

He said his life of crime was inspired by American films such as Scarface and Heat.

In the 1990s, Faid led a criminal gang involved in armed robbery of banks and armored vans transporting money. He received an eight-year prison sentence in 2011 - interrupted by the 2013 breakout. One of Faid's most recent prison supervisors said he was never in conflict with guards, but that "we must always be wary". "Behind all his manners - he is very polite - he always hid his game", the supervisor said.

Wearing police armbands, the three armed men dressed in black and hooded showed up at the prison entrance looking for Faid, a union representative told local media.
