An Egyptian court has sentenced three journalists to seven years in prison each on terrorism-related charges.
Al Jazeera Australian correspondent Peter Greste, Canadian-Egyptian acting Cairo bureau chief Mohammed Fahmy, and Egyptian producer Baher Mohammed were found guilty and sentenced today.

Mohammed was sentenced to three extra years in prison on separate charges.
The three were arrested in December as part of a sweeping crackdown on Islamist supporters of ousted president Mohammed Morsi.
