Following Mohammed Morsi's defiant appearance in court, the former Egyptian president's trial has been postponed.
An Egyptian court has fined former President Mohammed Morsi and sentenced him to three years in prison. Separately, human rights lawyer and activist Mahinour el-Masry was given a two-year prison sentence.
Egyptian voters may be heading to the polls early this year to pick their president. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi's re-election seems likely, but the opposition is preparing to put up a tough fight.
The ex-general met with his lawyer after rumors circulated he may have been disappeared upon arriving in Egypt. Ahmed Shafiq is considered on of the few challengers that could successfully run against President el-Sissi.
Ahmed Shafiq has made his first comments since arriving in Cairo amid a swirl of rumors he had been kidnapped. The former premier and air force officer says he is still considering a run for the presidency in 2018.
