An Egypt court Monday turned down a plea for bail by jailed Al-Jazeera journalists, who denied links with the blacklisted Muslim Brotherhood in a trial that has sparked international condemnation.
The journalists, who have spent nearly 100 days in jail since their arrest, are charged with spreading false news and supporting the Islamist movement of deposed president Mohamed Morsi.
"Please, get us out of jail, we are tired. We've been suffering in prison," Mohamed Fadel Fahmy, the Egypt bureau chief of Al-Jazeera English, told the judges.
