BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Malaysia's Anwar Ibrahim set free

BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Malaysia's Anwar Ibrahim set free: "Malaysia's Anwar Ibrahim set free
Malaysian former Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim has been set free from jail after the country's highest court overturned his sodomy conviction.
The decision came six years to the day after his mentor-turned-rival, former leader Mahathir Mohammed, sacked him following a row over the economy.
Mr Anwar has always argued that charges against him were politically motivated.
He told the BBC he would now travel to Germany for treatment for back problems he says resulted from a police beating.
As news of his release filtered out of the court, a roar went up from supporters outside. "
