Amina Sboui, a young Tunisian activist with the topless protest group Femen, was released from jail on Thursday pending her trial for desecrating a cemetery.
Sboui left the women's prison in Sousse, south of Tunis, where she has been held since May 19, and her supporters issued a photo of her making a victory sign after she was freed.
"She is with her family," her lawyer Ghazi Mrabet told AFP. He said he hoped arrangements had been made to look after the 18-year-old's security, as radical Islamists have threatened Sboui in the past.
