CAIRO, Feb 1 (Reuters) - Al Jazeera journalist Peter Greste left Egypt for his native Australia on Sunday after serving 400 days in an Egyptian prison on charges that included aiding a terrorist group, four security officials said.

There was no immediate word on the fate of his two Al Jazeera colleagues -- Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed -- who were also jailed in the case that provoked an international outcry. (Writing by Michael Georgy; Editing by Andrew Heavens)
