Ousted Egyptian president disrupts proceedings on first day of trial

Egypt's ousted president Mohammed Morsi struck a defiant tone on the first day of his trial on Monday, chanting "Down with military rule", and calling himself the country's only "legitimate" president.

Morsi, an Islamist who was toppled by the army in July after mass protests against him, appeared angry and interrupted the session repeatedly, prompting a judge to adjourn the case.
