Al Jazeera reporters in Egypt trial

Inside this Cairo prison three Al Jazeera journalists are being tried for joining and aiding a "terrorist organisation". They are among 20 people accused with some of the charges carrying sentences ranging from five to 15 years. Lawyers for Mohamed Fahmy, Peter Greste and Baher Mohamed along with five others were refused bail. Back home in Australia, Greste's parents are devastated. (SOUNDBITE) (English) FATHER OF ARRESTED AL JAZEERA JOURNALIST PETER GRESTE, JURIS GRESTE, SAYING: "He's been maligned, blacklisted, he's in the place of the worst of the worst. I hope you understand that I was ready to explode. Where is natural justice? Where is compassion? Where is human dignity?" Al-Jazeera denies aiding the Muslim Brotherhood, a political organisation, which the authorities have fiercely cracked down on since the military ousted its leader President Mohammed Morsi in July.
