AFGHANISTAN - Newspaper reporter freed after 11 days.

Reporters Without Borders is pleased to learn that Azizolrahman Sakhizadeh, a reporter for the Kabul-based daily Mandegar, was finally released on 16 July, 11 days after his arrest in response to a libel action by the head of the government’s anti-corruption department, Azizullah Ludin.
“We hail the personal commitment to Sakhizadeh’s release shown by President Hamid Karzai and information and culture minister Makhdom Raheen,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We also urge the courts to overturn the 30-month jail sentence that his editor, Nazari Paryani, received in absentia on a libel charge.”
