Egypt set to try Al-Jazeera journalists

Three Al-Jazeera journalists are due to go on trial in Egypt charged with broadcasting false news and assisting a terrorist organisation.

One of those being held is former BBC journalist Peter Greste.

The Egyptian authorities say the case is about breaking the law and not freedom of expression.

Orla Guerin reports.
