A Cairo court on Thursday adjourned the retrial of Al Jazeera television journalists, charged with aiding a terrorist organisation, to June 25 for further closing statements from the defence team.
The charge refers to the Muslim Brotherhood, which was outlawed in Egypt after the army ousted Islamist president Mohamed Mursi during mass protests against his rule in 2013.
Mohamed Fahmy, a naturalised Canadian who has given up his Egyptian citizenship, and Egyptian Baher Mohamed were released on bail in February after spending more than a year in custody. A third Al Jazeera journalist, Australian Peter Greste, was deported in February.
The journalists were originally sentenced to between seven and 10 years in prison on charges including spreading lies to help a terrorist organisation, which they have denied.
Egypt's high court ordered the retrial in January.
