Egypt prosecutors question Al-Jazeera journalists

Baher Mohamed, Mohamed Fahmy and Peter Greste were detained on 29 December.
Egyptian prosecutors are accusing three detained Al-Jazeera journalists of belonging to a terrorist group and broadcasting false news to undermine national security.
Police arrested the three in a Cairo hotel December 29. Authorities say the journalists confessed to belonging to the pro-Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, which Egypt calls a terrorist organization.
The three include acclaimed Australian reporter Peter Greste. Al-Jazeera says they are innocent.
The Muslim Brotherhood opposes Egypt\’s military-backed interim government and backs ousted president Mohamed Morsi.
