By Andrew Hammond RIYADH, Aug 28 (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia has released over 700 suspected militants after clerics “corrected” their thinking in a special programme aimed at stemming a three-year-old campaign of violence by al Qaeda, officials said. “They are sympathisers. There are many of this kind of people, who are subject to the process of an advisory committee. Hundreds of them have gone through this and been released,” Interior Ministry spokesman Mansour al-Turki said. The men have been released at different stages over the past three years, he explained. “They were arrested in the first place because they were suspicious, but there was no hard evidence against them linking them to any terrorist act or planning,” he told Reuters.
