Zahid Hussain, a senior journalist in Islamabad, said Saturday's court verdict was "an attack on the freedom of the press" and demanded the release of the three journalists.
Chaudhry Khadim Hussain, a senior member of Pakistan's Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ), also criticized the Egyptian court.
Hussain said: "Journalists should not be tried for doing their professional work." He called the Egyptian court verdict an attack on media freedom.
