The three journalists were arrested in December.
An Egyptian Court on Monday morning sentenced three AlJazeera journalists to jail.
The court found Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy, and Baher Mohamed guilty of reporting false news and associating with the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.
Aljazeera had denied the allegations and the world has accused Egyptian authorities of simply clamping down on media freedom.
The twitter hashtag #FreeAJStaff has been used globally to demand the release of the journalists who have been held since December, 2013.
