CAIRO: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sissi said on Thursday a presidential pardon for two of the three Al Jazeera journalists serving seven-year jail sentences in his country was being considered.

“Let us say that this matter is being discussed to solve the issue,” El-Sissi said in an interview with the France24 network.

El-Sissi issued a decree last week allowing him to repatriate foreign prisoners in Egypt, raising the prospect that Australian Peter Greste and Canadian-Egyptian Mohamed Fahmy could be released. Egyptian national Baher Mohamed is serving a ten-year sentence alongside his colleagues from the Doha-based network.
