Al Jazeera Journalists' Trial Adjourned by Egyptian Court

An Egyptian court on Sunday adjourned the trial of Al Jazeera television journalists Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed until March 19.

The pair are charged with aiding a terrorist organisation, a reference to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The judge told the court that the trial has been adjourned to Thursday, March 19, 2015.

He requested both defence and the to prosecution bring evidence seized at the time of the journalists' arrest.

A court last month released Mohamed Fahmy, a naturalised Canadian who gave up his Egyptian citizenship, and Egyptian Baher Mohamed, on bail after over a year in detention.

The defendants IDs were confiscated during the arrest.

A third Al Jazeera journalist, Australian Peter Greste, was deported earlier in February.
