TOPSHOT - Egyptian photojournalist Mahmoud Abu Zeid, widely known as Shawkan, mimes a photographer inside a soundproof glass dock during his trial in the capital Cairo, on September 8, 2018. - An Egyptian court on Saturday handed a five-year jail sentence to prominent photojournalist Zeid, known as Shawkan, who earlier this year received UNESCO's World Freedom Prize. Shawkan was arrested in August 2013 as he covered deadly clashes in Cairo between security forces and supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi. He was accused of "murder and membership of a terrorist organisation" -- charges that can carry the death penalty -- but should be able to walk free after already having spent five years in jail.
