Q&A: Egypt's war on Al Jazeera journalists

Egyptian national Mahmoud Hussein – a news producer for Al Jazeera Media Network – has been held for nearly two weeks after being accused of "spreading chaos" by the government of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. 
Hussein is the latest Al Jazeera journalist detained by Egyptian authorities. Al Jazeera's Baher Mohamed and Abdullah Elshamy both spent hundreds of days in prison in Egypt.
On Sunday they discuss the continued crackdown on the media in the country.
