Family delighted at Peter Greste's release

The family of al-Jazeera journalist Peter Greste have given a news conference following the release of Mr Greste from an Egyptian prison.

The Australian ex-BBC correspondent spent 400 days in a Cairo prison after he was arrested in December 2013 and tried on charges that included spreading false news and aiding the Muslim Brotherhood.

Two al-Jazeera colleagues, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed, remain jailed.

Andrew Greste said his brother was "safe, healthy and very, very happy to be on the way home". Peter's mother Lois Greste said it was difficult to believe her son would finally be coming home.
