An Egyptian-American prisoner freed by Egypt after it jailed him for nearly two years for his alleged involvement in the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood has returned to the United States. Frail-looking Mohamed Soltan was embraced by relatives and friends as he arrived Saturday at Washington's Dulles International Airport.

He had been on a hunger strike for more than 16 months to protest his extended detention.
