The trial of four Egyptian security agents accused of kidnapping and murdering an Italian student in Cairo resumed on Tuesday (Feb 20) after a prolonged delay following questions over the legality of proceedings.

Giulio Regeni, a postgraduate student at Britain's Cambridge University, disappeared in the Egyptian capital in January 2016. His body was found almost a week later and a post-mortem examination showed he had been tortured before his death.
