Israeli conscientious objector Hallel Rabin is released from detention for refusing to serve in the army. The 19-year-old had been facing another 80 days behind bars at a military prison, near the northern coastal town of Atlit, after having already served a total of 56 days there since August. In Israel, at age 18, young women are drafted for two years of military service while men must serve at least 32 months.
