Police say they have finished interrogating anti-government protester Zeev Raz over a Facebook post in which he appeared to justify the potential assassination of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

A police statement says Raz, a former air force pilot, has been sent home “under the appropriate guarantees” after he was detained for questioning, which it doesn’t elaborate on.
