Damascus: Syria Wednesday released from jail more
than 1,000 prisoners who had been involved in anti-regime protests, state-run television reported.

"1,180 prisoners who had been involved in the incidents
in Syria and who did not have blood on their hands were
released today," the state broadcaster said in a news flash.

Releasing prisoners is one of the points of an Arab
League roadmap approved by Syria earlier this month to end the
country`s crisis, including an end to repression of
pro-democracy protests.
