Libyan photojournalist Ismail Bouzreba was released from a prison in Benghazi on Saturday, following a detention period of practically three years.

Local sources said that Bouzreba arrived in the city of Ajdabiya on Saturday evening, immediately following his release, noting that he appeared to be in good condition.

Bouzreba was arrested in 2018 on various charges, which included working for “Al-Nabaa” TV channel and criticizing Khalifa Haftar and his so-called Operation Dignity.

A military court had sentenced him to 15 years in prison without allowing him to defend himself.
