Journalists Worldwide Protest Egypt’s Al Jazeera Verdict

Journalists around the world are standing in solidarity with three Al Jazeera journalists who were sentenced yesterday to seven to 10 years in prison. The Huffington Post has posted a collection of tweets showing support for Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed, including this one from the BBC:

The Obama administration has released a statement that reads in part, “The United States strongly condemns the verdicts rendered against three Al-Jazeera journalists and 15 other defendants today in Egypt. The prosecution of journalists for reporting information that does not coincide with the Government of Egypt’s narrative flouts the most basic standards of media freedom and represents a blow to democratic progress in Egypt.”

Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, the president of Egypt, said he will not interfere in the case’s ruling.
