The final protester tried in military court following demonstrations near the U.S. Embassy in Awkar in early December was released on bail Thursday.However, a security source told The Daily Star that the detainee had been held longer than the other suspects due to ongoing investigations.The minor was among 16 protesters – 10 Palestinians and six Lebanese – to be held following the demonstrations, while a number of others detained at the scene were released shortly after.One of the demonstrators at the protest, who asked not to give his name, said he followed the case and paid bail for the final detainee.The rights group again condemned the government's actions when detained protesters were sent to military court for trial.The U.S. Embassy could not be reached for comment; it has not made any statements regarding the protests.
