US 'concerned' by Egypt court ruling on Al-Jazeera reporters

AFP , Saturday 29 Aug 2015

The United States said it was "deeply disappointed and concerned" after an Egyptian court sentenced three Al-Jazeera reporters to three years in prison on Saturday.

"We urge the government of Egypt to take all available measures to redress this verdict, which undermines the very freedom of expression necessary for stability and development," State Department spokesman John Kirby said in a statement.
