Campaigner Michel Kilo is due to be released from prison tonight.
It comes four months after he was arrested for a protest letter published in racist newspaper An-Nahar. Kilo’s opponents say the campaign was backed by the Lebanese government.
10 were arrested back in May, only one remains in custody: human rights leader Anwar Al-Bunni.
Several hundred political prisoners remain in jails in Syria, one of the lowest numbers in the Arab world.
