Al Jazeera’s Mahmoud Hussein released from jail in Egypt
Al Jazeera, 07 Feb 2021
Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein has been released from prison in Egypt after more than four years.
He was arrested in 2016 while visiting relatives in Cairo, but was never formally charged with a crime or put on trial.
Multiple organisations campaigned for his release and said it could open the door for other journalists wrongly held in Egypt.
