Egypt's top court on Thursday ordered a retrial of three Al-Jazeera reporters who were jailed on charges of aiding the blacklisted Muslim Brotherhood, a defence lawyer told reporters.
Australian Peter Greste, Egyptian-Canadian Mohamed Fahmy and Egyptian Baher Mohamed of the broadcaster's English service were jailed in December 2013 in a case that triggered global outrage.
"The Court of Cassation has accepted their appeal and ordered a retrial," Greste's defence lawyer Amr Al-Deeb said after a hearing lasting just 30 minutes.
