Egypt court frees pro-Morsi protest women

An appeals court in Egypt has ordered the release of 21 women, including seven juveniles, who were jailed last month after a protest in support of ousted President Mohammed Morsi.

The minors were placed on three-month-long probation. The appeals court also reduced 11-year sentences given to 14 women to suspended year-long terms.

The BBC's Orla Guerin has more details.
