Sudan frees US resident charged with terrorism
Sudan's security services have freed a United States resident, Radwan Daoud, who was accused of forming a terrorist organisation.
Agents had initially arrested Daoud last month in a house in Khartoum where authorities said they had found materials calling for protests and regime change.
"He was freed last night," his lawyer Abdelmoneim Adel Mohamed said.
Daoud has legal permanent resident status in the United States.
The United States demanded the release of Radwan Daoud, who was re-arrested by security agents on Monday, the same day a judge found him not guilty of the most serious charges against him.
An austerity measure in Sudan has led to small demonstrations calling for President Omar Hassan al-Bashir to resign.
Sudanese activists say more than 1,000 people have been detained for taking part in such protests, though the number cannot be verified independently.
