AN Australian man who was detained by police after returning home from fighting against Islamic State militants in the Middle East is understood to have been released without charge.
Ashley Dyball left Brisbane in May this year to join a Kurdish military campaign against IS in northern Syria, and was arrested in Germany earlier this week while taking a break from the battlefield.
