Pakistan's $10m bounty cleric Hafiz Saeed released



Pakistani cleric Hafiz Saeed, who is accused by the US and India of masterminding the 2008 Mumbai attacks, has been released.
Mr Saeed, who carries a $10m (£7.5m) US bounty, had been under house arrest in the city of Lahore since January.
A court this week ordered his release, rejecting the government's arguments that he was a threat to public safety.
The co-ordinated attacks by gunmen in Mumbai left more than 160 dead. Mr Saeed has denied any involvement.
