Students join fight to free Al Jazeera staff

Monday marked 100 days since Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohammed were arrested in Egypt.

    College students in New York have joined the movement to protest the imprisonment of Al Jazeera's journalists in Egypt.

    Major media organisations also attended a press conference to express their support, warning the Egyptian government that their legitimacy has been compromised.

    Monday marked 100 days since Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohammed were arrested.

    They have been falsely accused of providing a platform to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.

    Abdulla Al Shami, the fourth Al Jazeera journalist in detention, has been imprisoned without trial since last August.

    Al Jazeera rejects all the charges against its staff.
