Mouths taped but voices loud: Protests mark 1 year since Al Jazeera journalists jailed


LONDON — Friends, colleagues and supporters of the three Al Jazeera journalists who were arrested in Egypt exactly one year ago have gathered outside the Egyptian embassy to protest against their incarceration.

Staff from Channel 4, CNN and other organisations held banners bearing the hashtag #FreeAJStaff and taped their mouths shut during the silent protest to draw attention to the trio’s ongoing sentence, at the start of a week that could see their case up for a retrial.
