Naguib Sawiris, one of Egypt's wealthiest businessmen, testifies during the retrial of Al-Jazeera television journalists at a court in Cairo, April 22, 2015. Sawiris testified for the defense on Wednesday at the retrial of two Al-Jazeera television journalists, possibly boosting their standing in a case criticized from abroad. Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed were sentenced last year to between 7 and 10 years in prison for aiding a "terrorist organization," a reference to the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood which was ousted from power by the army in mid-2013.
