4 July 2014 Last updated at 18:29 BST

Lois and Juris Greste have described their ''extremely emotional'' visit to a prison in Cairo to see their son, Peter.

Peter Greste was one of three al-Jazeera journalists to be sentenced to seven years in jail in Egypt, after being found guilty of spreading false news and supporting the banned Muslim Brotherhood.

His colleagues were Canadian-Egyptian national Mohamed Fahmy and Egyptian producer Baher Mohamed.

They spoke to the BBC's Sally Nabil - who began by asking them to describe the moment they first saw him.
