A Jordanian MP was released from jail on Tuesday for "lack of evidence", a day after he was charged with inciting a colleague to shoot at another deputy in parliament.
"Yahia al-Saud was released from jail today on orders from the attorney general who prevented his trial for lack of evidence," a judicial official told AFP, without elaborating.
Saud was detained and charged on Monday with inciting murder, defamation and slander, according to another judicial official.
In September, an argument broke out in parliament between Saud and MP Qusay Dumaisi.
