    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu was freed on Saturday after being detained trying to get into the Palestinian town of Bethlehem for Christmas in defiance of restrictions, police said.

    Police said Vanunu, a convert to Christianity from Judaism, had defied travel restrictions imposed after his release in April from an 18-year prison term for treason. He was detained for questioning on Thursday.
