Sinai leftist released

Hassan Abdallah, the coordinator of Sinai's Youth For Change, has been released few hours ago and is on his way home to Al-Arish, according to Kefaya's website.

Hassan was detained by State Security in Arish on 7 September, then transferred to Bourg el-Arab prison in Alexandria, with no access to lawyers or family visits. His two brothers Wael and Mohamed have been taking refuge in the Tagammu's office in Arish, after State Security officers threatened to kill them.
