Egypt frees detained Al Jazeera journalist -Al Jazeera

EGYPTIAN authorities have released Al Jazeera journalist Ahmed Al Nagdy from detention, the pan-Arab, Qatar-based television network reported, quoting Al Nagdy’s lawyer.

The move comes as Egypt’s president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi visits Doha, his first since the two countries restored relations last year following a regional diplomatic rift.

The visit comes as Egypt seeks further financial support and investment to cushion an economic shock caused by the war in Ukraine.
