Egypt Releases Two Canadians

Make sure to get on that first flight out, you guys. Egyptian officials on Sunday freed two Canadians who had been held without charges for seven weeks. Dr. Tarek Loubani and filmmaker John Greyson were arrested during Egypt’s deadly clashes this summer and accused of helping protesters. Loubani said he was helping injured protesters and Greyson filmed the violence. Their release comes just hours before more protests in Cairo are expected, as the country marks the 40th anniversary of the 1973 Arab-Israeli War.
