The Al Jazeera journalists are four of many journalists — Egyptian and foreign — who have been imprisoned, harassed, and threatened. AJ has demanded the release of their journalists, but the Egyptian government has continued to renew their detention.

Freedom to all journalists, and to all peaceful protesters jailed since the coup. #FreeAJStaff #anticoup #Egypt
