Egypt put three Al Jazeera journalists on trial on Thursday on charges of aiding members of a "terrorist organisation", in a case that human rights groups say shows the authorities are trampling on freedom of expression.The journalists, wearing white prison outfits, appeared in metal cages, a Reuters witness said. All three deny the charges and Al Jazeera has said the accusations are absurd. Egyptian officials have said the case is not linked to freedom of expression and that the journalists raised suspicions by operating without proper accreditation. Last month a prosecutor said Al Jazeera journalists had published lies harming the national interest and had supplied money, equipment and information to 16 Egyptians.The Brotherhood says it is a peaceful organisation.
