An Egyptian court on Wednesday adjourned the murder trial of ousted president Mohamed Mursi to March 1, to review the Islamist.
Mursi and, some of them former aides, are review a report on video footage of the December 5, 2012 clashes between Mursi’s supporters and opponents.
At least seven people were killed in the violence.
Mursi faces four separate trials, on charges ranging from contempt of the judiciary to plotting an elaborate conspiracy involving Iran and Palestinian militants to conduct attacks in Egypt.
He could be sentenced to death if convicted on several of the charges, which include collusion with foreign groups and incitement to murder.
His supporters say the military-installed regime has brought trumped-up charges.
More than 1,000 people, mostly Islamists, have been killed in violence since Mursi’s ouster.
