Israeli court orders deported US imam released, lawyer says

An Israeli military court has ordered the release of the deported former imam of Ohio's biggest mosque, but he will remain in custody for at least two more days, his lawyer said Tuesday.

 

A military judge ruled that there was not enough evidence to hold Fawaz Damra, who was arrested by Israeli authorities two-and-a-half-weeks ago after being deported by US authorities, according to his lawyer, Smadar Ben-Natan. However, she said, he will be held until Thursday pending a possible appeal by the prosecution. (AP)
