In news from Egypt, pro-democracy activist and blogger Alaa Abd El-Fattah was freed from prison after five years. El-Fattah was jailed on charges of organizing a protest in 2013 in violation of a newly-enacted law that effectively bans all protests in Egypt. He still faces five years’ probation, which means he will have to spend 12 hours in a police station every night.
