CWN Editor's Note: A prosecutor in Montenegro has released a Serbian Orthodox bishop and eight of his priests, who were arrested and held for three days on charges of violating emergency public-health regulations by participating in a prayer service for several thousand people. The clerics had said that they did not lead the service, but participated in a service that hundreds of lay faithful had organized on their own initiative.
