Egypt's former President Hosni Mubarak returns to court
The judge in the trial of Egypt's deposed President Hosni Mubarak has halted live TV coverage and ordered a merger with the trial of ex-Interior Minister Habib al-Adly.
Mr Mubarak, again wheeled into court on a hospital bed, faces the death penalty if found guilty of ordering the killing of protesters in Egypt's uprising.
His trial, which includes sons Alaa and Gamal, was adjourned to 5 September.
Rival groups clashed outside court, with some angry at the TV ruling.
The BBC's Yolanda Knell in Cairo said that there was a desire to see that "nobody in Egypt was above the law", but that chaotic scenes in court may have played a part in the judge's decision.
