Mahmoud Hussein, an Egyptian journalist working for the Qatar-based satellite network Al Jazeera, was detained at the Cairo airport in December 2016 over allegations of spreading false news and defaming Egypt’s reputation. However, no official charges were ever raised against him and Hussein didn’t stand trial. An Egyptian cou­rt finally ordered his release on Thursday (yesterday).
