Prosecutors sought the highest possible jail terms for three al-Jazeera English journalists on trial in Egypt, after accusing them, in their closing statements on Thursday, of making "a devilish pact" with the ousted Muslim Brotherhood.

Mohamed Fahmy, Peter Greste and Baher Mohamed now face prison sentences worth 15, seven and 15 years, after being held since December on charges of smearing Egypt's reputation, aiding the Brotherhood, and doctoring footage.
