Mursi trial for Ittihadiya clashes adjourned again

The Egyptian television aired footage of the trial of deposed President Mohamed Mursi on Monday.


CAIRO, March 4 (Aswat Masriya) A Cairo criminal court adjourned on Tuesday the trial of ousted President Mohamed Mursi and other Muslim Brotherhood leaders, over violent clashes, to Thursday. 

The court postponed the trial on Sunday because Mursi could not attend the hearing due to the poor weather conditions, and then again today because Essam al-Erian, a senior Brotherhood leader, has accused a court member of conflict of interest. 

Mursi and his top aides are accused of inciting the killing of peaceful protesters in front of the Ittihadiya presidential palace in December 2012 in light of protests against a constitutional decree issued by the Islamist president. 

Mursi and the others are also accused of other crimes, including spying in collaboration with foreign bodies.
