AP photographer Bilal Hussein reportedly set free

Free Bilal Hussein Committee just sent out the following announcement by email:

News just came in that our dear colleague Bilal Hussein is free at last!! Hemos recibido la noticia que nuestro querido colega Bilal Hussein esta libre al fin!!

The AP confirms that the 36-year-old photojournalist was released to his colleagues in Iraq last night. The U.S. military accused Hussein of collaborating with insurgents.

An Iraqi court exonerated Hussein earlier this month of terrorism charges against him . The United States issued a statement this week saying that Hussein was no longer considered a threat.
