Morsi Tells Judge in Cairo "I Am Egypt's Legitimate President"

Egypt's ousted leader Mohammed Morsi has gone on trial in Cairo, telling the judge the case is illegitimate as he remains president.

He and 14 other Muslim Brotherhood figures face charges of inciting the killing of protesters outside the presidential palace in 2012.

After Mr Morsi's remarks and his refusal to wear a uniform, the judge adjourned the trial until 8 January.

Protests took place outside the court and elsewhere in Cairo.

Mr Morsi was ousted by the military in July after protests against his rule.
