    Egyptian newspaper editor Islam Afifi was freed after a few hours in custody on Thursday, a security official said, following a presidential decree scrapping preventive detention for alleged publishing crimes.

    A senior security official confirmed late Thursday that Afifi, who is facing charges of inciting disorder and spreading false news, was freed in line with the decree.

    "He has been released from Tora prison and is on his way home," he told AFP.
