US military: AP photographer Bilal Hussein to be released Wednesday


www.ap.org

The U.S. military said Monday it will release Associated Press photographer Bilal Hussein, more than two years after he was detained by U.S. Marines on suspicions of links to insurgents. The military said it has determined Hussein is not a threat and plans to free him Wednesday.

Hussein has been in custody since April 12, 2006. The AP and Hussein denied any improper contacts and said he was only doing his job as a journalist working in a war zone.
AP President Tom Curley expressed relief.

This story seems to be coming to a happy conclusion for Bilal and his family.

I wonder how the Army is going to try and justify his detention, or if they will even bother trying.
