Ruling in Egypt Trial of Jazeera Journalists set for July 30

An Egyptian court said on Monday it would issue a ruling on July 30 in the retrial of two Al Jazeera television journalists previously sentenced to seven to 10 years in prison.

Mohamed Fahmy, a naturalised Canadian who has given up his Egyptian citizenship, and Egyptian Baher Mohamed were previously charged with aiding a terrorist organisation, a reference to the banned Muslim Brotherhood.

A third Al Jazeera journalist, Australian Peter Greste, was deported in February.
