Egypt ex-President Morsi defiant at jailbreak trial
Egypt's former Islamist President Mohammed Morsi has struck a defiant tone at the beginning of his trial over his escape from prison in 2011.
Mr Morsi started shouting: "I am the president of the republic, how can I be kept in a dump for weeks?"
Egypt's first freely elected president was deposed by the military in July 2013 after mass protests against his rule.
