Syrian blogger freed after media pressure, but his brother stays in jail just because of blood relations

On Thursday, Anderson Cooper interviewed Zaidoun Al-Zoabi, who had been released from prison in Syria for his  activism.  (Anderson had referred to him as “our voice”.)  But his brother was still in prison, “just because he’s my brother”.

Zaidoun said he was treated “respectfully” in prison but almost died because there was no medication.  He said he got a call from a woman to come to a café and was arrested when he arrived.
