CAIRO — An Egyptian official says police have released the owner of a publishing house which printed copies of a book that called for political change and praised the former head of the UN nuclear agency.
Ahmed Mahanna, owner of Dawin publishing, was released Sunday, a day after his home and business were raided.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak to the media.
Mahanna published the book, ElBaradei and the Dream of a Green Revolution
, which places hope for political change on Mohammed ElBaradei, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and former IAEA head.
Since returning to the political arena this year, ElBaradei has spoken forcefully for constitutional changes to make Egypt's elections freer and fairer.
