Al-Jazeera reporters ask Egypt judge to free them

Published: 03.31.14, 16:23 / Israel News

Two Al-Jazeera journalists on trial in Egypt directly asked the judge on Monday to release them, insisting the terrorism charges against them were preposterous.


The request by Australian Peter Greste and Canadian-Egyptian Mohammed Fahmy came during a hearing in the trial that has drawn international uproar.


The two, along with a third Al-Jazeera staffer and 17 others, face terrorism-related charges based on the Egyptian authorities' accusations that they provided a platform to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group of ousted President Mohammed Morsi, but their defenders say they were doing their job.
