Al Jazeera trial: 'Everybody cheered' as journalists bailed

A court in Egypt has ordered the release on bail of two Al Jazeera journalists convicted of aiding the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.

Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed have been detained for more than a year, with previous applications for bail having been rejected.

They were sentenced to up to ten years in prison along with an Australian colleague, Peter Greste, who was freed last week.

Sally Nabil reports from Cairo.
