Incarcerated Al Jazeera journalists

A relieved Bahrainian refugee and soccer player Hakeem al- Araibi arrived back in Australia today after spending many weeks detained in a Thai Prison.  Renowned journalist Peter Greste could sympathise with his plight after suffering over 400 days in an Egyptian prison himself  on trumped up charges.
