An al-Jazeera journalist jailed without trial in Egypt since last August is to be released from jail on health grounds, nearly a year after he was arrested while covering the violent dispersal of a protest camp in Cairo, prosecutors said on Monday.

Abdullah Elshamy, a reporter for al-Jazeera Arabic, has been in jail for 306 days accused of several violence-related crimes, and is expected to be released on Tuesday morning, his brother said.
