Judges adjourn trial of former president Mohamed Morsi and other Muslim Brotherhood leaders in order to listen to more eyewitness testimonies

The trial of Mohamed Morsi and 14 others has been adjourned until Wednesday so the court can listen to eyewitness testimonies.

Morsi, his presidential aides and other senior Muslim Brotherhood leaders are accused of inciting the murder and torture of opposition protesters outside the presidential palace in December 2012.

At least ten people were killed in the protests, triggered by a presidential decree that expanded Morsi's powers and put his decisions beyond judicial review.

Morsi, who was removed from power by the army in July 2013 amid nationwide protests against his year-long rule, also faces a number of other charges in separate trials, including espionage and breaking out of prison in the January 2011 uprising.
