Egyptian Blogger Freed

Egyptian political blogger Alaa Abdel-Fattah is out of prison after six weeks in prison. His family says it does not know why the authorities jailed him, but his wife says the postings on their website are probably the reason. After his arrest, the website maintained a "Free Alaa" notice (still up as of today) and supporters blogged extensively in his defense. Read more about Mr. Abdel-Fattah, his detention, and the campaign to free him here.
