Brazil Releases Google Head Detained over Political Videos
Google also ordered to block access to Innocence of Muslims video there
Police have released the head of Google Inc's Brazil operations after his detention for not taking down a YouTube video a judge ruled violated local electoral law.
A police spokeswoman said on Thursday Google's most senior executive in Brazil, Fabio Jose Silva Coelho, was released after agreeing to appear in court at a still undetermined date.
A Brazilian court had ordered YouTube to remove the anti-Islam video that prompted violent protests across the Muslim world, just as an elections court separately ordered the arrest of Coelho after the popular video-sharing service failed to remove another, unrelated video attacking a mayoral candidate.
