Ibrahim Halawa: Irish teenager 'shared cell with Peter Greste'

An Irish teenager who has spent over a year in jail in Egypt shared a cell with freed Australian journalist Peter Greste, according to his family.

Ibrahim Halawa was detained with three of his sisters when they were caught up in the Al-Fath mosque siege in Cairo in July 2013.

His sister Somaia spoke to BBC News NI's Shane Harrison about the families concerns for Ibrahim's state of mind.
