Israel frees Palestinian speaker Dweik after year behind bars

Israel released Tuesday the speaker of the Palestinian parliament, an AFP reporter said, after almost a year in prison, following an army crackdown over the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers. Aziz Dweik, speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, was arrested on June 16, 2014 as Israel staged a massive manhunt for three teenagers who were snatched from a road in the southern West Bank by Palestinian militants linked to Hamas.
