I AM FREEAn Egyptian judge has ordered that two Al Jazeera journalists be released pending retrial after more than 400 days behind bars.

The ruling comes less than two weeks after a third defendant, Peter Greste, was released then deported to his native Australia after a presidential decree allowing foreign nationals to be repatriated. Fahmy, who had been a dual national, renounced his Egyptian citizenship in order to secure his freedom, but Mohamed does not have a foreign passport.
congratulations for my colleague and best friend @PeterGreste #To_be_an_Egyptian_is_not_a_crime#FreeAJStaff#FreeBaher
