CPJ Urges El-Sisi to Release All Journalists Jailed in Egypt

The Committee to Protect Journalists writes a letter to Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi expressing concern about the deteriorating climate for press freedom in Egypt, days before he addresses the United Nations General Assembly in New York. CPJ welcomes the pardon on Wednesday of the Al-Jazeera journalists, but calls for the immediate release of all other journalists imprisoned in Egypt in relation to their work.

The full letter is available in English and Arabic.
