On Tuesday, The Stream speaks with Al Jazeera journalist Abdullah Elshamy, who was freed from an Egyptian prison in June after spending more than 300 days behind bars without trial. He was arrested covering protests in Cairo in 2013. Elshamy spent more than half his time in jail on hunger strike. Al Jazeera journalists Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed remain imprisoned. Al Jazeera has dismissed all allegations against them and has called for the immediate release of its staff.
