Egypt's top court has ordered a retrial of three al-Jazeera journalists jailed for spreading false news.

The decision was made after the hearing in Cairo of an appeal by the three, Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed, against their conviction.

Prosecutors acknowledged there were major problems with the verdict. A new trial is to take place within a month.

The journalists deny collaborating with the banned Muslim Brotherhood.
