Egypt has announced it will release another group of Palestinian prisoners

Ahram Online, Sunday 3 Apr 2011

Egypt's Supreme Council of Armed Forces announced it will release 14 Palestinian prisoners who are expected to return to Gaza today.

It is believed that most of these prisoners were jailed without trial during the era of former President Hosni Mubarak.

Since Mubarak stepped down on February 11, approximatly 30 Palestinian prisoners have been released. Many more managed to escape and return to Gaza during the chaos that broke out across the country during the revolution.
