The Attorney General has agreed to release media reporter Mohammad Al Wakeel and news editor trainee Ghadeer Rbehat on bail, after requests from three members of the House of Representatives and from the Council of Churches were submitted, December 12, 2018.

Al Wakeel and the trainee editor were detained on Monday, December 10, after his website’s official Facebook page published a Jesus cartoon that was deemed offensive by Christians and Muslims in Jordan.
