A judge will today announce a verdict date for Ibrahim Halawa following the ending of his trial yesterday.

Halawa was arrested, along with his three sisters, while taking sanctuary in the Al Fath mosque back in August 2013. Halawa was just 17 years old at the time.

His three sisters were released on bail, but Ibrahim has been locked up for almost four years since the incident. 

His trial had since been adjourned 28 times. 

Halawa has been receiving a huge amount of support online, with the hashtag #FreeIbrahim boasting a huge following on social media.
