Three journalists from the Al-Jazeera network arrested in Cairo have been refused bail following a court appearance.

The men are accused of broadcasting false news and aiding the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood - charges they deny.

Producer Mohamed Fahmy told the court it was ironic that he and his colleagues were back in court on World Press Freedom Day.
