SAUDI BLOGGER RELEASED AFTER FOUR MONTHS - DETAINED WITHOUT CHARGE...
A Saudi blogger detained without charge for more than four months after expressing pro-reform opinions has been released, a colleague said on Saturday.
Fouad Farhan was detained in early December after running an online campaign over 10 men arrested since February 2007 on suspicion of financing militant groups, but whose supporters say they are being punished for pro-democracy activity.
"I spoke to him and he's in good spirits. He said he was treated really well," said Ahmed al-Omran, who published the news on his website .
"It was surprising. After blocking his website, I thought his detention would go on longer. It's good news."
