Mohammed Fahmy freed and reunited with his family after more than a year in Egyptian prison

Two Al-Jazeera English journalists were released from an Egyptian prison on Friday, after spending more than a year behind bars on terror-related charges in a case denounced as a sham by rights groups and the international community.
The two, Mohammed Fahmy and Baher Mohammed, were freed pending a retrial. The network said by midday that they have been reunited with their families in Cairo. A third co-worker, Australian Peter Greste, was freed two weeks ago and deported to his home in Australia.
