Al Jazeera reporter Peter Greste talks during interview with Reuters in SydneyBy Lincoln Feast SYDNEY (Reuters) - Al Jazeera reporter Peter Greste, deported after spending 400 days in an Egyptian jail on charges that included aiding a terrorist group, fears he will be found guilty in absentia at a retrial that resumes in Cairo next week. Australian Greste and two Al Jazeera colleagues, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed, were sentenced to seven to 10 years in prison last June in a case that provoked an international outcry. A retrial was ordered after Egypt's highest court found procedural flaws in the initial case began in February, soon after Greste was deported to his native Australia.
