Al-Jazeera journalists speak at start of trial
Three journalists from al-Jazeera have denied all charges at the start of a trial in Cairo that has raised concerns about freedom of speech in Egypt.
Egyptian-Canadian bureau chief Mohamed Fahmy, Australian reporter Peter Greste, Egyptian producer Baher Mohamed and five others were refused bail before the case was adjourned until 5 March.
They are among 20 people facing charges including joining or aiding a terrorist organisation - the Muslim Brotherhood.
Orla Guerin reports from Cairo on what emerged during the first day of the trial, including from the journalists themselves.
