Egypt releases Al-Jazeera TV correspondent
font size    

Egyptian police on Thursday released Cairo bureau chief of the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera TV Hussein Abdel-Ghani who was arrested in the morning for allegedly broadcasting "false" news over this week's Sinai bombings.

Egyptian Attorney General of the Supreme State Security Prosecution ordered the release of Abdel-Ghani on a bail of 10,000 Egyptian pounds (1555 US dollars), the official MENA news agency reported.

Abdel-Ghani was detained for cross-examination over accusations of "purportedly broadcasting false information liable to confuse public opinion and cause instability".

The pan-Arab al-Jazeera TV has taken a lead in broadcasting this week's five suicide bombings in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, including triple bombings in Red Sea resort of Dahab on Monday evening and twin bombings near a base of the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) in north Sinai on Wednesday.

Dahab bombings killed 18 people including three foreigners and injured 83 others, while bombings in north Sinai caused no casualties except the two suicide bombers themselves.

On Wednesday, al-Jazeera also reported that two foreign soldiers were wounded in north Sinai suicide bombings and unknown gunmen attacked Egyptian police in Sharqiya, some 65 km north of capital Cairo.

Both the two reports were later denied by the Egyptian Interior Ministry.
