Political activist Ahmed Abu Doma was acquitted by prosecutors on Monday after spending nearly three months in prison for his alleged involvement in December's Cabinet sit-in against military rule.

Abu Doma, a member of the Youth for Justice and Freedom movement, was arrested on 12 January by order of judges Wageeh El-Shaeer and Wagdy Abdel Azim.

The two judges were commissioned by the justice ministry to investigate the December clashes that took place between demonstrators protesting against military rule and security forces outside Egypt's Cabinet building in downtown Cairo.

Abu Doma had faced charges of inciting violence against army personnel and encouraging attacks on public property during the clashes.
