An Egyptian court suspended the conspiracy trial of the country’s former president, Mohammed Morsi and some top Muslim Brotherhood leaders after defense lawyers demanded that a panel of judges overseeing the trial be changed.

The Cairo Criminal Court on Thursday decided to suspend the trial on Thursday as the defendants’ lawyers demanded that the panel be changed. No date was set for the trial to start.
