Egypt Court Will Issue Verdict To Al Jazeera Journalists On July 30


CAIRO, June 29 (Reuters) - An Egyptian court said on Monday it would issue a ruling on July 30 in the retrial of two Al Jazeera television journalists previously sentenced to seven to 10 years in prison.

Mohamed Fahmy, a naturalized Canadian who has given up his Egyptian citizenship, and Egyptian Baher Mohamed were previously charged with aiding a terrorist organization, a reference to the banned Muslim Brotherhood.

A third Al Jazeera journalist, Australian Peter Greste, was deported in February. (Reporting By Shadi Bushra; Writing by Stephen Kalin; Editing by Gareth Jones)
