Tears of Happiness as Jailed Al Jazeera Journalists Are Finally Released

An 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.
