Spain frees 9/11 suspect on bail

[JURIST] The High Court in Spain on Tuesday freed on bail 9/11 suspect Ghasoub al Abrash Ghalyoun. A real estate developer in Spain, Ghalyoun is accused of taking amateur video while on vacation in the US and providing it to members of al Qaeda to aid in the 9/11 terrorist attacks [JURIST news archive]. Some legal analysts believe his release on bail suggests the three-judge panel may be leaning towards clearing Ghalyoun of any charges. Reuters has more.
