CAIRO - An Egyptian court on Sunday adjourned the trial of pro-democracy activists accused of illegally receiving funds from abroad, a decision lawyers said would give them and the judge time to review the case.

Sixteen US citizens are among 43 defendants targeted in a judicial probe of illegal funding of civil society groups that has strained ties between Egypt and Washington and led some of the Americans to take refuge at their embassy in Cairo.

The extended time frame for the trial could give more time for a diplomatic solution to the case, lawyers said.
