WASHINGTON - Washington on Tuesday urged Sudan to release a resident of the United States who was re-arrested just after being freed in one of the first trials of people detained in protests against President Omar Hassan Bashir's government.

Radwan Daoud was rearrested by Sudanese security services on Monday, the same day a judge found him not guilty of the most serious charges against him, which included terrorism, the State Department said in a statement.
