The trial of Irish teenager Ibrahim Halawa is due to get underway this morning.
The 18-year-old is facing charges linked to a military crackdown on protests in the city in August 2013.
He was one of 494 people arrested after demonstrations at Cairo’s Al-Fath mosque following the ousting of former Egyptian president Mohammed Mursi last year.
I spoke to his sister Somaia (left) for RTÉ’s Morning Ireland about her fears that her brother could face a death sentence.
Update: Ibrahim Halawa’s case has been postponed until January 6th.
