Egyptian Al-Jazeera journalist Abdullah Elshamy (R), who has been on hunger strike, is hugged by his wife’s mother outside a police station in Cairo’s eastern neighbourhood of Nasr City on June 17, 2014, a day after the prosecutor general ordered his release from detention due to his health condition. Egypt on June 16 released Elshamy along with 12 other defendants who have been on hunger strike for nearly five months to protest their detention due for their health conditions.
