CAIRO: Prosecutors accused three detained Al Jazeera journalists, including Australian Peter Greste and Canadian-Egyptian Mohamed Adel Fahmy, yesterday of broadcasting false news in the service of the now terror-blacklisted Muslim Brotherhood. They were arrested on December 29 in a Cairo hotel. “The accused confessed during interrogation that they belonged to the terrorist group” the Muslim Brotherhood, prosecutors said in a statement, adding the journalists edited footage “to tarnish Egypt’s image abroad to serve the international terrorist organisation.” The journalists’ lawyers and Al Jazeera dismissed the allegations as false.
