Moussa Kaka freed... sort of

A followup to earlier stories, Radio France Internationale's correspondent in Niamey, Niger, released from prison after over a year's detention. He was originally charged with "complicity in plotting against state authority" for making contacts with the country's Tuareg rebels, as part of his journalistic duties. The charges could've seen him spend the rest of his life in jail. The charges have been downgraded to less serious offenses, but ones that still carry up to a five-year prison sentence. Also, he is reportedly still under house arrest.
