BRISBANE, Australia (Reuters) - Peter Greste, the Al Jazeera journalist freed after more than a year in an Egyptian prison, arrived back in his Australian homeland early on Thursday.

Greste was released on Sunday after 400 days in a Cairo jail and had been in Cyprus since. Greste had been sentenced to seven years on charges that included aiding a terrorist group in a case that had attracted widespread attention and criticism of Egypt's leadership and judiciary.
