Al-Jazeera journalists Mohamed Fahmy (bottom, 3rd from R) and Baher Mohamed (center, 2nd from R), talk to the press during their trial in Cairo on August 29, 2015An Egyptian court sentenced three Al-Jazeera reporters to three years in prison on Saturday, in a shock ruling that sparked international condemnation. Canadian Mohamed Fahmy and Egyptian producer Baher Mohamed were in court for the verdict, while Australian journalist Peter Greste was tried in absentia after being deported early this year. The court said they had broadcast "false" news that harmed Egypt.

Police are looking for a suspect seen on gas station video footage and they released photos of the man and his car on TwitterThe prime suspect in the "cold-blooded assassination" of a Texas sheriff's deputy was charged with murder Saturday, a day after the officer was gunned down from behind and shot multiple times at close range allegedly because he was a policeman. The fatal shooting prompted an emotional reaction from local officials, who pointed their finger at ramped-up rhetoric against police officers in the United States in protests against perceived police brutality. Darren Goforth, 47, was killed Friday night in the Houston area because of his job, Sheriff Ron Hickman said, announcing the charges against the alleged gunman.

Fahmy and Mohamed talk to the media at a court in CairoBy Ahmed Aboulenein CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian court sentenced three Al Jazeera TV journalists to three years in prison on Saturday for operating without a press license and broadcasting material harmful to Egypt, a case that has stirred an international outcry. The verdict, in a retrial, was issued against Mohamed Fahmy, a naturalised Canadian who has given up his Egyptian citizenship, Baher Mohamed, an Egyptian, and Peter Greste, an Australian who was deported in February. Rights advocates say their arrest was part of a crackdown on free speech waged since the army overthrew President Mohamed Mursi, a senior Muslim Brotherhood figure, in July 2013 following mass unrest over his rule.
