Egypt to Free Prisoners Linked to Sadat Killing, Al Ahram Says

March 11 (Bloomberg) -- Egypt’s military rulers ordered the release of Abboud and Tarek El-Zomor, who were imprisoned for their role in the assassination of former President Anwar Sadat, the semi-official Al Ahram newspaper said today.

The two were kept in prison after their sentences finished, the newspaper said. The release decision covers 60 political prisoners, it said.
