An al-Jazeera journalist imprisoned in Egypt has lost over a third of his body weight after spending more than 100 days on hunger strike in one of Cairo's most notorious jails, claims his family.  

Photographs released by the broadcaster on Monday showed 26-year-old Abdullah Elshamy during a rare court appearance as he waited to learn whether his pre-trial detention would be extended by a further 45 days.
