Syria 'releases 755 detained during unrest'

Syrian state TV says the authorities have released 755 people detained during the nine-month-old uprising against President Bashar al-Assad.

The prisoners had been involved "in recent incidents" but their "hands were not stained with blood", a report said.

The UN says more than 14,000 people are in detention and 5,000 have been killed as a result of the state's crackdown.
