Al Jazeera’s Mahmoud Hussein detained for one year
by Mohamed Hashem
When his daughter Hagar graduated from high school, Mahmoud Hussein clipped articles from newspapers about universities from the confines of his prison cell.
He wanted to be there for Hagar as she was about to embark on a new journey – higher education, and inform her of the best choices.
“When I visited, I found that he’d made a list of universities that are suitable for her,” says Zahra Hussein, Hagar’s sister.
At 23 years old, Zahra is the second oldest of Hussein’s nine children.
