Lawyers for Egypt's Morsi walk out of latest trial

Lawyers for Egypt's ousted president Mohammed Morsi have walked out of his trial on charges of espionage and conspiring to commit acts of terror.

The lawyers withdrew in protest at Mr Morsi and other defendants being confined in a soundproofed glass cage.

He was Egypt's first democratically elected leader, but was deposed by the military last year after huge street protests against him.

Sally Nabil reports from Cairo.
