    Al Jazeera's Baher Mohamed, Mohamed Fahmy and Peter Greste, along with seven colleagues outside the country, were accused of spreading "false news" during their coverage of demonstrations, protesting a military overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi in 2013.

    Greste, Fahmy and Mohamed were given sentences of seven to 10 years. Greste was deported from Egypt in February under a presidential decree. Mohamed and Fahmy were freed together following a presidential pardon in September.

    The international campaign that travelled widely on social media under the hashtag #FreeAJStaff saw news companies and human rights organisations join the call for press freedom.

    Baher Mohamed will be joining us on live-streaming app Periscope on November 4th at 5:30pm GMT to answer your questions about life in an Egyptian prison and what comes next.
