The 'donkey bloggers'

Adnan Hajizade and Emin Milli are known as the 'donkey bloggers.'

The nickname refers to a short video they made last year in which a man in a donkey costume holds a news conference.

The pair had a small following in Azerbaijan for their satirical blog posts, which poked fun at the authorities.

So when they were arrested a few weeks after posting the donkey video online, their supporters believed it was an attempt to silence them.

The court found them guilty on a charge of hooliganism, related to a scuffle in a restaurant, and the pair were jailed.

The sentence caused a storm, and the US President Barack Obama even called for their release.

Last week, after a year in jail, Adnan and Emin were finally freed.

Outlook's Jo Fidgen spoke to them about their experience from Baku, Azerbaijan.
