A man walks past a drawing depicting jailed prominent Shiite human rights activist Nabeel Rajab in the village of Bani Jamrah, Bahrain, February 3, 2014A Bahraini court Sunday freed prominent Shiite activist Nabeel Rajab but barred him from travel until his trial resumes over remarks on Twitter deemed insulting to public institutions, a judicial source said. The criminal court in Manama ordered Rajab’s release from custody and adjourned the trial until January 20, the source told AFP. A picture on his Twitter account later showed Rajab in a car, smiling and flashing a “V” for victory sign, as his family said he arrived home. Rajab, a member of Bahrain’s Shiite majority which has held protests against the Gulf kingdom’s Sunni rulers since 2011, was arrested on October 1 after posting comments on Twitter about the interior and defence ministries.
