Call for release of Al Jazeera journalist

By Julie Tomlin

Yemen’s president during his visit to Spain will call for the release of an Al-Jazeera journalist jailed for seven years for collaborating with Al-Qaeda, AFP reports.

Al-Jazeera television reporter Tayssir Allouni was imprisoned by a Spanish court in 2005 after he was found guilty of acting as a financial courier to Al-Qaeda while in Afghanistan.

Allouni, Al Jazeera’s Kabul correspondent, was the first journalist to secure an interview with Osama bin-Laden, following the September 11 attacks in the United States.
