Al Jazeera journalist Mohamed Fadel Fahmy has welcomed a decision by an Egyptian court to hold a retrial for him and two other journalists as a 'milestone'.
Canadian-Egyptian Fahmy also said that the three journalists are in high spirits.
Fahmy, former BBC correspondent Peter Greste and Egyptian Baher Mohamed, were sentenced in June for charges of abetting terrorists, spreading false news and endangering national security.
Al Jazeera has demanded that the journalists are released immediately because the original trial was flawed.
