An Al Jazeera journalist jailed in Egypt is finally getting to go home

CAIRO (Reuters) – Al Jazeera journalist Peter Greste, imprisoned in Egypt 400 days ago on charges that included aiding a terrorist group, will be deported to his native Australia on Sunday, Egypt’s state news agency reported.

Two security officials confirmed that an order had been given for Greste’s release. There was no immediate word on the fate of his two Al Jazeera colleagues — Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed — who were also jailed in the case that provoked an international outcry.
