BBC Online : Twenty journalists, including four foreigners, are to go on trial in the Egyptian capital, Cairo. They face charges including aiding a terrorist organisation – as the Muslim Brotherhood was designated in December – and endangering national security. Eight defendants are in custody, among them al-Jazeera’s Egyptian-Canadian bureau chief Mohamed Adel Fahmy and Australian correspondent Peter Greste. The others, including two British journalists, will be tried in absentia. Al-Jazeera has said only nine of those charged are members of staff and that they were merely reporting the situation in Egypt.
