Former interior minister Habib Al-Adly’s trial gets off to a late start after Sunday's bout of rain left Cairo's streets flooded

Monday’s court session of former interior minister Habib Al-Adly was delayed for ‎hours due to inclement weather.‎
It was teeming with rain in Cairo and other Egyptian cities on Sunday, causing ‎widespread traffic problems. ‎

Adly is indicted on charges of money laundering and embezzlement. He is also being held ‎accountable for the killing of protesters during the early days of the January 25 Revolution.‎ Escorted by security personnel in a blue van, Adly arrived to the courtroom late. He was brought ‎on time during all the previous sessions.‎

A security official said the driver deliberately slowed down on his way to the court to avoid ‎road accidents. ‎

The judges, who are to hear Adly’s defence team today, also arrived late as a result of the ‎slippery streets.‎
