The trial of Egypt's toppled president Hosni Mubarak, facing murder and corruption charges, was adjourned on Monday until September 5 and will no longer be broadcast live on television.



The judge, Ahmed Refaat, also decided that the trial of Mubarak and his former interior minister, Habib al-Adly, would be merged, as demanded by the lawyers of families of those killed in Egypt's January-February uprising.



Refaat put a halt to live television broadcasts of the trial, which opened on August 3 with a brief session held on Monday that went into recess before the adjournment was announced.
