    Aid Worker Returns to U.S. After Release From Egyptian Jail

    I couldn't find a thread for this:

    Aid Worker Returns to U.S. After Release From Egyptian Jail

    WASHINGTON—An Egyptian-American aid worker imprisoned in Egypt for three years returned to the U.S. Thursday after being released earlier this week, in a diplomatic victory for President Donald Trump.

    The release of Aya Hijazi and her husband followed a high-level intervention from the Trump administration, according to an advocacy organization that worked on her case.

    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration flew Aya Hijazi, an Egyptian-American aid worker, home to the United States on Thursday evening after negotiating her release from three years of captivity in Egypt on charges of child abuse and human trafficking, two senior administration officials said.

    Kerry Kennedy, the president of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights center, which represented Ms. Hijazi, said in a statement Thursday night that it was a “day of celebration” for her and the others freed.

    “Their strength through adversity serves as a model for all who seek to make our world just and peaceful,” Ms. Kennedy said. “Aya and Mohamed stood up for ideals, acted to improve the lot of others and sent forth ripples of hope. We are grateful for their example, and to all those who helped make today possible.”

    Trump meets with Egyptian aid worker released from Cairo jail

    Hijazi is a graduate of George Mason University and grew up in northern Virginia. There was virtually no evidence brought against her, her husband or the four humanitarian workers.*
    It's my opinion if no link provided.
