CAIRO - Egypt's public prosecutor ordered the release on Monday on medical grounds of Al Jazeera journalist Abdullah Al-Shamy, who had been on hunger strike for more than 130 days in protest over his detention, a statement from the prosecutor's office said.

Three other Al Jazeera journalists are on trial on charges of aiding ousted President Mohamed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood, which the state has declared a terrorist group as part of a fierce security crackdown after the army ousted Morsi last July.
