The United Arab Emirates is expected shortly to free an American who was jailed with others over a YouTube video that mocked Dubai teenagers.
Shezanne Cassim, a 29-year-old from Minnesota, will likely be freed within days, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. "We have received word that Mr. Cassim has been moved to a deportation facility for processing. We understand processing will take a few days at which point he will be returning to the United States," she said. (AFP)
