Kenya colleagues call for release of Greste

Colleagues and friends of Peter Greste call for his release, as they mark 100 days since he was jailed in Egypt.

    Journalists in Kenya are calling for the release of the detained Al Jazeera correspondent, Peter Greste.

    Greste was based in Nairobi and had worked in the region for years.

    He is one of three Al Jazeera English journalists arrested on December 29 in Egypt, all of whom were later charged with "spreading false news" and belonging to a "terrorist organisation".

    Media organisations around the world have been urging Egypt to release Al Jazeera's staff.

    Al Jazeera rejects the charges against its journalists, and continues to call for their release.
