Bradlow to arrive in SA tomorrow
The cameraman will be reunited with his family after being detained in Egypt last week.
CAPE TOWN - South African cameraman Adil Bradlow is expected to return home on Tuesday after being detained in Egypt.
Bradlow, who was covering events in Cairo for news network Al Jazeera, was released on Sunday.
He and three colleagues were detained by Egyptian authorities on Tuesday.
The four Al Jazeera employees reportedly got into trouble for filming in Egypt without accreditation, but there has been no official explanation from South Africa's International Relations Department.
Bradlow's long-time friend Benny Gool says he is set to return to Johannesburg on Tuesday morning.
"Adil presently is in the UK. As you know, he was deported last night. He's spending the day in London and then he's on a flight back tonight. He arrives in Johannesburg tomorrow morning."
Egypt has been in a state of emergency following nationwide violence and a deadly crackdown by security forces on pro-Morsi protesters.
President Mohamed Morsi was overthrown in July.
He is being held at an undisclosed location.
The Muslim Brotherhood is demanding Morsi's reinstatement.
