Syrian state television announced this on Thursday, Jan. 5.

"(Syria) released 552 people who were involved in recent events whose hands were not stained with blood," the station said in a news flash.

The move follows the release last week of 755 detainees, part of a peace plan that Syria signed with the Arab League in December. The deal calls for the withdrawal of troops from cities, dialogue with the opposition and the release of thousands of detainees.
