Mursi Lawyers Barracked on Arrival for Trial


Supporters of Egypt's military surrounded cars containing lawyers representing deposed former Egyptian president Mohamed Mursi and shouted at the occupants as they arrived on Saturday (February 1) at the Cairo court where the trial of the former president is held. As defence lawyer Selim Al-Awa drove to the hearing a female protester banged on his car shouting: ''You are a traitor to your country.''
