VIDEO: Rally for jailed Egyptian blogger Maikel Nabil

Maikel Nabil

A rally is held outside the military prosecution office in Egypt as the military courts consider an appeal for detained blogger Maikel Nabil.

Nabil was arrested earlier this year, tried in a military court and sentenced to three years in prison on charges of insulting the military and spreading lies about them.

On the day of the appeal, the 26 year old blogger had been on hunger strike for 43 days.
