Tunisia frees Benghazi suspect
A Tunisian court has ordered the release of Ali Hamzi, a man suspected of involvement in the deadly attack on the US consulate in Libya last September, according to his lawyer Abdelbasset Ben Mbarek.
The ruling came after Hamzi was interrogated by four FBI agents and a translator in Tunisia last month, without the presence of a defense lawyer.
Mbarek called the methods used during the interrogation of his client "scandalous." He said, "He has returned to his family. If he had been implicated in the attack, he would not have been released," adding that his client remained under judicial control because he was still charged with belonging to a terrorist group.

Hamzi was detained while trying to enter Turkey after the attack on the US mission in Benghazi. He was deported back to Tunisia in October, where he was charged with belonging to "a terrorist group based abroad."
He had refused to be interrogated by FBI agents. Tunisia's justice ministry has defended its right to full cooperation with the United States in combatting terrorism.
