A court in Egypt has ordered two imprisoned al-Jazeera English journalists to be released on bail, nearly a fortnight after their Australian colleague, Peter Greste, was deported.
The case against them continues. But Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed are likely to be free within 48 hours, for the first time in 14 months, Guardian UK reports.
They were arrested in December 2013 on trumped-up charges of helping terrorists and spreading false news.
Fahmy must put up 250,000 Egyptian pounds (around £21,000) for his freedom, but Mohamed and several students also tried alongside Greste have no fee to pay.
