Christiane Amanpour Holds Up #FreeAJStaff Sign On-Air

AmanpourOn her CNN International show, Christiane Amanpour held up a sign of the hashtag #FreeAJStaff in a report on what fellow journalists around the world are doing to show support for the four imprisoned Al Jazeera reporters.

Amanpour reported on journalists who are taping their mouths shut and holding up the signs in calls for the release of the four journalists who’ve been held captive in Egypt for over a month.

The journalists solidarity campaign on social media comes at the same time journalists in Kenya protested outside of the Egyptian embassy there, with some holding signs “Journalism is Not a Crime.”
