Cairo Criminal Court
Cairo - MENA

The Cairo Criminal Court adjourned the retrial of seven defendants, including Al Jazeera journalists Baher Mohamed and Mohamed Fahmy, over terror-related charges until March 8.
Fahmy and Mohamed were released from prison earlier this month after spending over 400 days behind bars. An appeals court ordered their release on bail pending their retrial on February 12.
They face charges of defaming Egypt and spreading false news in a trial that involves 18 other defendants, many of whom are being tried in absentia.
All defendants are not allowed to leave the country while the case is ongoing.
Fahmy and Mohamed's release came days after that of Australian Peter Greste's, who was released and deported on February 1.
