Cairo court adjourns Aljazeera staff trial hearing

The retrial of two Al Jazeera journalists has been adjourned by a Cairo court for more closing statements by the defence team.

Thursday’s hearing was to be the seventh in the much-delayed retrial in Egypt of Baher Mohamed and Mohamed Fahmy. The next hearing date has been fixed for June 25.

The seven sessions, including the one of June 11, have been all adjourned.

The journalists were charged with aiding a terrorist organisation, a reference to the Muslim Brotherhood, which was outlawed in Egypt after the army overthrew President Mohamed Morsi amid mass protests against his rule in 2013.

The journalists and Al Jazeera have vigorously denied the accusations, saying they were just doing their jobs.
