Q&A: Charges against Egypt's Mohammed Morsi
Ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi is a facing a raft of criminal charges, along with many others from the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood movement from which he hails.
Mr Morsi was Egypt's first democratically elected president but was deposed by the military in July after huge street protests against him.
With new charges announced on 19 January, he faces four trials in all.
At the opening of his first trial on 4 November, Mr Morsi said he was still Egypt's legitimate leader and refused to wear the uniform given to defendants.
Proceedings were due to resume on 8 January, but they were adjourned until 1 February after officials said bad weather had prevented Mr Morsi being flown from his prison in Alexandria to the court in Cairo.
What charges does Mohammed Morsi face?
Mr Morsi has been charged over the deaths of protesters outside the Ittihadiya presidential palace in December 2012.
The prosecutors say the charges in that case are: "Inciting his supporters to carry out premeditated murder crimes, inciting the use of violence, thuggery and imposition of control with the intention of intimidating citizens, calling on his supporters to disperse a sit-in outside the presidential Ittihadiya palace by using force, complicity with others to seize 54 protesters at the wall of the presidential palace and torturing them."
At least 10 people died in the clashes. The Muslim Brotherhood claims most of the victims were Islamists.
The other defendants in that case include the former presidential and deputy presidential chief-of-staff, and senior Brotherhood leaders Mohammed al-Beltagi and Essam al-Erian, the recently-arrested deputy leader of the Brotherhood's political wing, the Freedom and Justice Party.
On 18 December, it was announced Mr Morsi and more than 30 others in the Muslim Brotherhood's leadership were to stand trial for "conspiring with foreign organisations to commit terrorist acts", with prosecutors alleging that Mr Morsi formed an alliance with the Palestinian militant group Hamas and Lebanon's Hezbollah.
Mr Morsi is also facing fraud charges in connection with the Muslim Brotherhood's economic and social programme for Egypt's recovery, called Renaissance (al-Nahda). The trial was due to begin on 23 December, but the Burj Al-Arab Misdemeanour Court in Alexandria referred the case back to prosecutors because it was outside its jurisdiction.
Separately, Mr Morsi is facing a third trial relating into his escape from jail during the 2011 uprising against former President Hosni Mubarak.
He is one of about 130 defendants charged with the murder of prison officers during the breakout.
His co-defendants include members of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and Hezbollah.
On 19 January, it was reported that he and 24 others would also go on trial for insulting the judiciary. While in office, he had allegedly named a judge in a public speech and accused him of overseeing fraud in previous elections.
What led up to Mr Morsi's arrest?
In December 2012, the Islamist-dominated constituent assembly approved Mr Morsi's draft constitution boosting the role of Islam and restricting freedom of speech and assembly. The public approved it in a referendum but this prompted widespread protests by secular opposition leaders, Christians and women's groups.
Over 50 people were killed the following month in violent street protests.
In July 2013, the military warned Mr Morsi that it would intervene if he did not reach an agreement within 48 hours with opposition groups to resolve Egypt's political crisis.
On 3 July, the head of the Egyptian army, General Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, announced the suspension of the constitution. The move followed four days of mass street protests calling for the resignation of Mr Morsi, who had not responded to the ultimatum. He was subsequently arrested.
During his 13 months in power Mr Morsi fell out with key institutions and sectors of society and was seen by many Egyptians as doing little to tackle economic and social problems.
He also faced accusations of working for the Muslim Brotherhood, rather than for the Egyptian people as a whole, and of seeking to change the character of the state in line with the Brotherhood's Islamist ideology.
Egypt became polarised between his Islamist supporters and his opponents, who generally include liberals, secularists and leftists.
How significant are the charges?
Even though several of Egypt's most influential figures approved the removal of Mr Morsi, debates about the legality of ousting a democratically elected leader have dominated Egyptian discourse and anti-Morsi protestors have frequently clashed with his supporters on the streets.
Only days before Mr Morsi's trial, three presiding judges stepped down at the trial of Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie and his two aides. Judge Mohammed Fahmy al-Qarmuty said he and his colleagues had a "feeling of embarrassment" over the case.
With Mr Morsi in court, Egypt will have two former presidents on trial simultaneously. Hosni Mubarak, who was toppled in 2011, is being retried on charges that he too was complicit in the killings of protesters against his rule.
Some of the charges Mr Morsi faces carry the death penalty.
Have Egyptians been able to see the trial?
No live pictures have been shown during the proceedings so far in the trial that has opened, but state TV did broadcast what it billed as "exclusive" footage of the trial's opening after the proceedings.
It showed Mr Morsi arriving at the court looking relaxed and being applauded by the other defendants, who were all wearing white uniforms in contrast to Mr Morsi, who was wearing a suit.
The defendants could be seen waving at each other using the Rabaa hand gesture - a four-finger salute adopted by the Brotherhood's supporters - while others attending the court waved their fists and chanted.
The footage also showed the defendants turning their backs to the judge as a sign of rejecting the trial, which Mr Morsi did not do. No audio accompanied the footage.
The Tamarod Movement, an anti-Morsi youth group, has called for live broadcasts to ensure that the proceedings are transparent and fair. Morsi supporters are also in favour of live broadcasts as they believe that TV images could provoke sympathy for him.
