Chossudovski's take on it:

A BBC report admitting to the guns, and describing the breakout:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/4264614.stm

Summary of stuff at the time, including the incident:

Washington Post story referring to the allegations:

Jingoistic coverage from the Mirror:

=sas-sprung-from-jail-by-tanks-name_page.html

This WSWS report refers to some of the sources:

Of course the British government is unlikely to admit to this and you
can't trust an Iraqi - they might have an agenda... Some of these only
refer to the undercover SAS soldiers shooting the police when they were
approached. Some refer to the allegations of explosives.
Cheers,
