Hamas frees journalists

Hamas frees journalists

Following a wave of protests, Hamas released on Tuesday six Palestinian journalists and bloggers who were detained last week in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas claimed that the journalists and bloggers had plotted to foil attempts to achieve reconciliation between the Islamist movement and Fatah.

Ehab al-Ghissin, spokesman for the Hamas government, said that Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh ordered the release of the detainees “despite the sensitivity of the case.”
