An Egyptian court on Sunday postponed for a second time its verdict in the retrial of three Al-Jazeera journalists, rescheduling it for August 29 in a move the defendants called an insult. Another judge at Sunday's hearing said the verdict was being delayed again because other defendants in the trial could not be brought to the court room from their cells. "The accused are not present for security reasons, so the court decided to postpone the verdict to August 29," said judge Ahmed Yousry.
