Al Jazeera journalist relishes reunion with family

Baher Mohamed, who spent 411 days in an Egyptian prison, vows to "be strong" ahead of retrial in Cairo on Sunday.

    Baher Mohamed, one of three Al Jazeera English journalists imprisoned by the Egyptian government in December 2013, has been released on bail after 411 days pending a retrial.

    Mohamed speaks about being reunited with his family, life in prison and his hopes for the future.
