An Egyptian court on Wednesday adjourned the murder trial of ousted president Mohamed Morsy to March 1, to review video evidence against the Islamist.

Mr. Morsy and 14 co-defendants, some of them former aides, are charged with inciting the killings of opposition protesters outside the presidential palace in December 2012.

The court also postponed witness testimony scheduled for Wednesday’s session, after Mr. Morsy’s defence requested more time to prepare for cross examination.

Mr. Morsy was present in the court, inside a soundproof glass dock to prevent him from interrupting with defiant outbursts, as he had done before. He insisted in previous hearings that he was still Egypt’s legitimate President and challenged the legitimacy of the court.
