Rabbi Shapira freed after interrogation with police

Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira, head of the yeshiva Od Yosef Chai, was released by authorities and allowed to return home Monday after being detained and interrogated on the suspicion of racial incitement.
During the interrogation, the investigators questioned Rabbi Shapira on some of the religious guidelines he published in his book Torat Hamelech [The King's Law] and asked him to clarify the intent of his words.
Shapira reportedly told them that his work was a book regarding the interpretation of religious law and not an incitement to action.
