CAIRO – Egypt's state TV says the judge in the trial of the country's deposed Islamist president and 14 others has adjourned the hearing soon after it started because the defendants' chants were disrupting the proceedings.
The adjournment – likely to last till later on Monday – came after a two-hours delay in the start of the proceedings.
Security officials inside the courtroom says the delay was caused by Mohammed Morsi's insistence not to change into the prison uniform customarily worn by defendants, part of his refusal to recognize the trial's legitimacy.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
Morsi and the others are charged with inciting murder and could face the death penalty if convicted.
