Halawa brother 'may be in custody for another 45 days'

The sister of Ibrahim Halawa - who has been detained with three of his siblings in Egypt for almost three months - says he may be kept in custody for another 45 days.

Omaima, Somaia and Fatima were yesterday released from a Cairo prison after being arrested for taking part in a protest at a mosque during unrest in August.

Ibrahim, 17, faces a further court appearance later today.

His sister Nusayba says she is delighted that she'll get to see her sisters again, but says the family are still very concerned for Ibrahim.
