Although an international campaign managed to secure their freedom, there are more than 70 other journalists still in prison.

Al Jazeera continues to reject any accusations that it has in any way compromised its journalistic integrity, and that it was collaborating with Morsi’s elected government.

Muslim Brotherhood-backed Morsi was overthrown by the military in July 2013 after mass protests a year after he took office.

Senior leaders in the Muslim Brotherhood and their followers have been sentenced to death in different cases since military leader Abdel Fattah el-Sisi overthrew Morsi’s government.

The Muslim Brotherhood, which has since been banned, has dismissed the sentences and other harsh verdicts as politically motivated.

The Egyptian government has repeatedly said that the country’s courts operate independently.
