Mursi on Trial - 05 Nov 2013
Images of ousted former Egyptian president Mohamed Mursi and senior figures of the Muslim Brotherhood in a courthouse on the first day of his trial Cairo. Given his first public forum since his overthrow in a trial where he could face execution, Mursi declared on Monday he was still Egypt's legitimate president and shouted: "Down with military rule!"

Mursi, an Islamist who was toppled by the army in July after mass protests against him, spoke with anger and passion, interrupting the first day of his trial repeatedly from his cage during an unruly hearing that the judge adjourned to Jan. 8.

Opponents of Egypt's army-backed government deride what they call a "show trial" as part of a campaign to crush Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood movement and revive the police state of Hosni Mubarak's 30-year rule that ended in a 2011 popular revolt.
