Ali Belhadj briefly rearrested
Ali Belhadj got arrested for demonstrating in front of the American Embassy with banners saying "Oh rulers of the Arabs, close the embassies of Zionist terrorism" and "Stop the flow of oil to Bush's bloodthirsty government, and kick the petrol companies out of the land of the 1.5 million martyrs." He allegedly received a sympathetic reception from the police, who agreed with him on the Lebanon issue (his opinions are scarcely controversial on this point, after all!) but were legally required to prevent unauthorised demonstrations. He was released later that day, and placed under close security observation. Ashara Al Awsat, Angry Arab.
