The Fifth Estate The Mohamed Fahmy Story: 400 Days Classroom Favourites

Canadian journalist Mohamed Fahmy never expected he would go to jail just for doing his job. But in his first-ever television interview since release, the former Cairo bureau chief for Al-Jazeera English describes 400 days of utter hell, some of which he spent locked up with hardened prisoners and violent jihadists. Fahmy sat down with The Fifth Estate's Gillian Findlay in Cairo and told his whole story – from the horror of conviction, to his disappointment in Canada's prime minister, to what he thinks will happen with his trial in Egypt's courts.
