Canadian filmmaker recalls time in Egypt jail

As detained Al Jazeera staff continue to suffer, John Greyson describes his 50 days in the notorious Tora Prison.

    John Greyson was recording the shooting of protesters in Ramses Square last year when he was arrested by Egyptian police and sent to Tora Prison, where the country's worst criminals are held.

    There he would remain for 50 days, alongside 36 others arrested on that day.

    The Canadian filmmaker describes his experience to Al Jazeera.
