Imprisoned Al Jazeera Journalists Trial Adjourned Until March 24

The three Al Jazeera journalists imprisoned in Egypt since the end of last year have had their trial adjourned until March 24.

“We are again disappointed that Mohamed Fahmy, Peter Greste, and Baher Mohamed were not released from prison today,” Managing Director of Al Jazeera Engligh Al Anstey said. “The trial in Egypt is a trial of journalism itself, so we remain resolute in calling for freedom of speech, for the right for people to know, and for the immediate release of all of Al Jazeera’s journalists in detention in Egypt”.

This twitter picture sent out by Al Jazeera shows the journalists caged during their trial.

Last week, rallies were held in more than 30 cities to show support for the imprisoned journalists and call for their release.
