Egyptian court postpones trial of deposed president Morsi
A Cairo Criminal Court on Thursday postponed the trial of ousted President Mohamed Morsi, charged with inciting the killing of protesters, RIA Novosti reported referring to Daily News Egypt.
The trial of Morsi, alongside 14 other members of the Muslim Brotherhood Islamist movement, has been postponed until April 21, the online newspaper said. If found guilty, Morsi and his accomplices could face the death penalty.
Morsi was charged with inciting violence, including the torture and murder of protesters outside the presidential palace in December 2012. At least 10 people were killed during the clashes.
Egypt's first democratically elected president, Morsi was ousted by the military in 2013, following mass protests demanding that he step down.
The former president faces other charges, including the killing of police officers in his 2011 jailbreak, plotting terrorist attacks with foreign Islamist groups and espionage.
