Egypt court orders release of Al Jazeera journalist

A court in Egypt has ordered the release of Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein from prison after 881 days of detention.
The court ruled on his release on Tuesday but following an appeal by the prosecution Hussein was brought to a different court on Thursday. It upheld the earlier decision.
However, it remained unclear exactly when the Qatar-based Egyptian producer will be freed from prison. Az-Zahra Hussein, his daughter, said in a Facebook post her father will be released “with precautionary measures”, and will soon be transferred to a police station from prison.
