Australian Al-Jazeera journalist Peter Greste listens to the verdict in Cairo on June 23, 2014 inside the defendants cage during his trial for allegedly supporting the Muslim BrotherhoodEgypt freed and deported Australian journalist Peter Greste on Sunday after more than 400 days in detention, following global condemnation of his jailing on charges of backing the Muslim Brotherhood. Greste, an award-winning correspondent for Al-Jazeera English, departed on a flight to Larnaca in Cyprus soon after his release from Cairo's Tora prison, interior ministry and airport officials told AFP. The reporter was detained along with two colleagues, Canadian-Egyptian Mohamed Fahmy and an Egyptian producer, Baher Mohamed, in December 2013 and charged with aiding the blacklisted Brotherhood movement. Qatar-based Al-Jazeera welcomed Cairo's decision and expressed hope its other two journalists would soon also be released.
