Supporters of jailed Australian journalist Peter Greste, who was sentenced to seven years in an Egyptian prison, have taken to social media to voice their opposition to the decision of an Egyptian court.

Mr Greste and two of his Al Jazeera English colleagues were sentenced on Monday, after being found guilty of spreading false news and supporting the blacklisted Muslim Brotherhood organisation – a political party recently named a terrorist organisation by Egypt’s new government.
