(MENAFN - Daily News Egypt) The Higher National Security Prosecution ordered a 15-day detention renewal of a news producer for Qatari Al-Jazeera news channel on Monday, pending investigations. The Qatari network has denied all accusations against Hussein and demanded his immediate release. Al-Jazeera further added that the arrest and accusations are a result of practices that violate international conventions, and according to human rights organisations, these violations prevail in Egypt. Al-Jazeera called on human rights organisations to defnd Hussein because 'journalism is not a crime.' It also said that Hussein is currently working in Qatar's capital of Doha after the Al-Jazeera office in Egypt closed in 2013.
