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.
