Kareem Amer has been released. The blogger, who served more jail time than any other blogger so far, was abducted after leaving Tahrir Square on Sunday, February 6, with a friend.

Kareem, whose full name is Abdul Kareem Nabeel Suleiman Amer, hadn't taken a particularly high-profile place in the recent protests. His criticism of Islam is still resented by many in Egypt. He had enough enemies because of the content of his blog that it was uncertain who took him, private citizens or police.

Cairo-based activist Dalia Ziada reported on the release via Twitter about three hours ago, about 2:45 a.m. Friday local time.

We will update this post as more information becomes available.
