Parents of Australian reporter jailed in Egypt call for his release

The parents of an Australian journalist held in a Cairo prison have called on Egyptian authorities to release him, saying accusations against him as preposterous.


Al-Jazeera English says Australian correspondent Peter Greste, Egyptian-Canadian acting bureau chief Mohammed Fahmy and Egyptian producer Baher Mohamed were only doing their jobs before they were taken into custody last month accused of broadcasting false news that harmed national security.
