Former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi made his first public appearance since his oust last July sitting before a criminal court Monday in Cairo. As VOA's Elizabeth Arrott reports, his moment in the spotlight was brief.

It was over almost as soon as it began. The trial of ousted President Mohammed Morsi was adjourned shortly into the first session after defendants began chanting in protest. Reports from inside the courtroom say Mr. Morsi who is deposed by the military after popular protests, rejected the proceedings telling judges he remains the nation's legitimate president. Mr. Morsi and fourteen members of his Muslim Brotherhood and former government face charges of inciting murder during protest against him last December. If found guilty, he could face the death penalty. The start of the trial was delayed because Mr. Morsi rejected wearing the traditional white jumpsuit of defendants. State media says Mr. Morsi's trial is set to resume January 8. Elizabeth Arrott, VOA News, Cairo.
