Mohamed Morsi supporters have been protesting in front of the Supreme Court in Cairo, during the trial where the deposed president faces charges of inciting violence, conspiring with Hamas and insulting judges.
Egyptian police have arrested at least five pro-Morsi supporters outside the court in Cairo where deposed President Morsi's trial is being held.
Trial for ousted Egyptian President Morsi has been adjourned soon after it started because the defendants chants were disrupting proceedings, The Associated Press has reported. The adjournment is likely to continue until later on Monday.
Morsi and the others are charged with inciting murder and could face the death penalty if convicted.
The trial for ousted President Mohamed Morsi has begun at the Police Academy in Cairo.
Morsi has reportedly not engaged any defense lawyers, “He was not recognizing that he was a defendant and [said] he did not have a case to answer. If there was anybody to speak on his behalf in court, he said, it would be him,” Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reported from Cairo.
Pictures are surfacing of individuals walking into the gate of the Police Academy in Cairo where the trial of Mohamed Morsi, the ousted Egyptian president, is being held.
Reporters are lined up waiting for glimpses of deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi at his trial in Cairo.
The spokesperson of the lawyers defending Morsi, Mohamed El Damatti, has said the defense did not receive the case documents until the night before the trial showing that the trial is already unfair -
"We only received case documents last night. We have not received permit to attend hearing yet," he told Al Jazeera Arabic.
An Egypt State TV reporter has said on Monday that Morsi and all defendants have
arrived at court.

Egypt's interim prime minister has condemned the attack outside a church that killed three people, including an 8-year-old girl, pledging police would do everything possible to bring the perpetrators to justice.
Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi said in a statement that the attack was a "callous and criminal act".
He said such attacks will "not succeed in sowing divisions between the nation's Muslims and Christians".
Two Canadians who were barred from leaving Egypt following weeks of imprisonment without charges have returned to Canada.
Filmmaker John Greyson and physician Tarek Loubani left Cairo on a flight on Friday morning and were warmly greeted by family and friends when they landed in Toronto.
"We're delighted to be here, to be free," Loubani said.
Egypt lifted a travel ban for the two on Thursday. The pair weren't allowed to board a plane after they were released from jail on Sunday.
Greyson and Loubani had been held without charges since August 15, when they were arrested while observing a demonstration in support of ousted President Mohammed Morsi in which the Canadians said they saw at least 50 protesters killed. [AP]
Egypt's health ministry has said one person was killed and seven injured during clashes between anti-coup protesters and local residents today. The ministry says the death was in Sharkia and that the seven injuries happened during clashes in Damietta.
The Associated Press news agency reports that two Canadians who were barred from leaving Egypt after weeks in prison without charge have now left the country.
The pair, filmmaker John Greyson and physician Tarek Loubani, were arrested while observing a demonstration in support of deposed president Mohamed Morsi.
Al Jazeera's correspondent in Cairo, who we are not naming for security reasons, says Cairo's demonstration is the most visible in Egypt today. He confirmed, though, that there have been skirmishes between anti-coup protesters in other cities, including Alexandria.
"But these were separated by the police and there were no serious reports of casualties."
