Peter Greste: 'Warden said it's time to pack your stuff'

Al-Jazeera journalist Peter Greste has described the moment he heard he was being freed from an Egyptian jail after 400 days behind bars.

The former BBC reporter said a prison warden called him over and told him to pack his stuff, saying that the embassy would be there in an hour.

Mr Greste also told Al-Jazeera TV of the "incredible angst" he felt at leaving behind two of his colleagues.
