Morsy trial abruptly adjourned

November 5th, 2013
02:29 PM ET

The trial of deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy was interrupted when defendants began chanting in court on Monday.

The interruption caused an adjournment soon after the beginning of what was expected to be a brief opening hearing, state-run Al Masriya TV said.

The eight defendants in court Monday chanted that the trial was illegitimate, Al Masriya reported. There was no immediate word on how long the adjournment would last.

Al Masriya also said Morsy refused to wear the white uniform that was assigned to him and the other defendants.

CNN's Ian Lee gives this report from Cairo.
