Lebanon: Zaman Al Wasl reporter sets free after 24 days of detention
   Abdul Hafiz Al-Houlani
 Zaman Al Wasl reporter, who was arrested by the Lebanese Intelligence over refugee abortion report, has been released on bail after 24 days of detention.

Abdul Hafiz Al-Houlani was held by the Lebanese State Intelligence on November 21 after publishing an article about 20 Syrian refugee women were aborted due to polluted water in Arsal refugee camps.

The Lebanese Public Prosecution in Baalbek city has accused al-Houlani, who covers Syrian refugee affairs in Arsal camps, of inciting sectarian strife following his latest report.
Al-Houlani, who lives in Arsal's refugee camps, has never been charged with a crime or offence. 

He was arrested last may over his covering, which seemed annoying the local authorities.
