Al-Jazeera Television says its journalist Baher Mohammed has also been freed from an Egyptian prison, just hours after his colleague Mohammed Fahmy was let go on bail.
The network and the relatives of the two say that both have been reunited with their families on Friday. They spent over 400 days behind bars on terror-related charges.
Mohammed’s wife, Jehan Rashed, told The Associated Press that her husband arrived home around 7 am. Mohammed also appeared in photos posted on the “Free Baher” Facebook page.
Earlier in the day, Fahmy’s brother tweeted that he posted $33,000 bail following Thursday’s court decision that freed the journalists pending retrial.
Their third colleague, Australian Peter Greste, was deported to his home-country, Australia, two weeks ago.
