Abdullah El-Shamy and Mohamed Sultan have been on a hunger strike since January to protest their extended detention
Hundreds of protesters chanted against the imprisonment of Al-Jazeera journalist Abdullah El-Shamy and Egyptian-American Mohamed Sultan, son of pro-Muslim Brotherhood preacher Salah Sultan, both on hunger strike since January.
Demonstrators at the Journalists' Syndicate in downtown Cairo chanted against Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim as well as against "military rule."
El-Shamy's brother told Ahram Online that the protest's aim is to pressure authorities to hasten El-Shamy's referral to trial.
El-Shamy's detention has been repeatedly extended by prosecutors since his arrest in August 2013.
