Gaza minister of interior frees 80 prisoners

Dec. 7, 2012 8:56 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 7, 2012 8:56 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The ministry of interior in the Gaza Strip decided Friday to release 80 prisoners who had served two-thirds of their sentences as a celebratory gesture following Palestine's admission to the UN.

Ministry spokesman Islam Shahwan said in a statement that the minister, Fathi Hamad, made the gesture after the UN voted to recognize Palestine as a non-member state in the UN and the victory over Israel during its assault on Gaza last month.
