    The trial of eight Al Jazeera journalists resumed in Cairo on Wednesday. They are accused of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and broadcasting false reports. The journalists were arrested after interviewing members of the Brotherhood, which has now been banned by authorities and branded a terrorist organisation. Twelve others are being tried in absentia.
