Greste denied bail

Greste denied bail

Australian Journalist Peter Greste and his two colleagues have been refused bail in Egypt overnight.

Mr Greste and two other journalists with Al Jazeera English are charged with spreading false news and supporting the blacklisted Muslim Brotherhood of deposed president Mohamed Morsi.

But Mr Greste, who was granted an interpreter for this hearing, says the prosecution has no evidence against them.

The trial resumes next Monday.
