Morsi Lawyers Withdraw From Trial Over Glass Cage Used to Hold Former Leader
BBC – Lawyers for deposed Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi have walked out of his trial on charges of espionage and conspiring to commit acts of terror. The trial has now been adjourned until 23 February.
The lawyers withdrew in protest at Mr Morsi and other defendants being confined in a soundproofed glass cage. The Islamist former leader is facing four separate trials, three of which have now opened.
