Czechs held in Greece on espionage charges released from jail

Two Czech citizens held in Greece since September on espionage charges were released from jail on Wednesday on a 5,000 euro bail. Their release came after the Greek authorities stated that they did not represent a security threat. The two video games developers were arrested and accused of espionage after they took photos of a military facility on the Greek island of Lemnos. The men said they took the pictures to use them in a new game. They are expected to arrive in the Czech Republic on Thursday; however, they might have to return to Greece for a trial.
