They were accused of spreading false news and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.

Louisa Loveluck — a reporter for the Christian Science Monitor — was present at the Cairo sentencing and posted a video of the Al Jazeera journalists' reactions.

Fahmy can be heard shouting, "They will pay for this, I promise they will pay for this," after police dragged him from the cage in the courtroom.

A man can also be seen trying to block Loveluck's camera from recording.
