Protest held for Al Jazeera journalists jailed in Egypt

Protests have been held in dozens of cities across the world calling for the release of three journalists imprisoned in Egypt.

Australian Peter Greste, Mohammed Fahmy, a Canadian-Egyptian, and Egyptian national Baher Mohamed were all detained by authorities in December.

Demonstrators in many places, including London, Beirut, Nairobi and Khartoum, took to the streets wearing tape over their mouths to protest at the men's detention.

Speaking in Trafalgar Square, London, Al Jazeera English correspondent Sue Turton said the protest is aiming to "to keep the pressure on the Egyptian government".
