Egyptian blogger on military trial to be freed

An Egyptian blogger on trial before a military tribunal for slandering the nation's premier army academy will be released and proceedings suspended after he agreed to apologize, his lawyer said Sunday.
Mohammed Mahmoud, lawyer of 20-year old Ahmed Mostafa, said his client has a week to issue an official apology on his blog for falsely claiming there was corruption in the army's military academy in a post titled "The Military Academy's Scandal."
The tribunal agreed suspend proceedings in return for the apology.
This means the case is not written off, and could be revived.
