RABAT - The United States is evaluating the outcome of legal proceedings in Egypt, where 16 Americans are among dozens of democracy activists being put on trial, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Sunday.

"We are evaluating the outcomes of the legal proceeding today. We'll have more to say after we have finished that analysis and gathered as much information as possible," she told reporters on a visit to the Moroccan capital.

An Egyptian court earlier on Sunday adjourned the trial of the activists at its opening session. The case has threatened ties between Cairo and Washington and $1.3 billion in annual US military aid.
