The father of one of three of the al-Jazeera journalists sentenced to seven-year jail terms in Egypt have said he is "devastated and shocked" by the finding.

The jail terms handed out to three al-Jazeera journalists accused of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood have led to an international outcry.

Juris Greste, the father of Peter Greste, told a news briefing that "this is a very dark time, not only for our family but for journalism generally".
