Peter Greste brother devastated over Egypt trial

The brother of Al-Jazeera correspondent Peter Greste says he is "devastated" that his brother is to face trial in Egypt.

Greste is one of four foreign reporters charged with aiding Egyptians belonging to a terrorist group and spreading false news.

TV station Al-Jazeera has said the men were merely reporting the situation in Egypt.

His brother, Andrew, told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire: "Peter was doing what any credible journalist does - and that's gathering information from all sides of the story."
