Tunisia's Hannibal TV says owner released

TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisia’s private Hannibal TV said on Monday its owner Larbi Nasra had been freed after his arrest a day earlier on charges of treason and of working through the channel for the return of the ousted president.

It gave no more details. Hannibal TV was taken off the air for about four hours after Nasra’s arrest but resumed broadcasting after an opposition minister intervened on his behalf.
