Jailed al-Jazeera journalist, Peter Greste, has been deported from Egypt, state media say, and is flying to Cyprus.
He was arrested in December 2013 and imprisoned, with two other journalists, last June on charges that included spreading false news.
The other two are Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed.
According to a BBC report, Presidential sources said Mr Fahmy would be deported to Canada after his dual Egyptian nationality was dropped.
All the defendants denied the charges against them and said their trial was a sham.
They were accused of collaborating with the banned Muslim Brotherhood after the overthrow of President Mohammed Morsi by the military in 2013. The three men said they were simply reporting the news.
Al-Jazeera tweeted that it welcomed Peter Greste’s release and demanded Mr Fahmy and Mr Baher be freed.
Mostefa Souag, acting director-general of al-Jazeera media network, said in a statement: “We’re pleased for Peter and his family that they are to be reunited. It has been an incredible and unjustifiable ordeal for them, and they have coped with incredible dignity…
“We will not rest until Baher and Mohamed also regain their freedom.
“The Egyptian authorities have it in their power to finish this properly today, and that is exactly what they must do.”
