An Egyptian court on Sunday adjourned until March 19 the trial of two Al Jazeera television journalists.

The pair are charged with aiding a terrorist organization, a reference to the Muslim Brotherhood.

A court last month released Mohamed Fahmy, a naturalized Canadian who gave up his Egyptian citizenship, and Egyptian Baher Mohamed, on bail after over a year in detention.

A third Al Jazeera journalist, Australian Peter Greste, was deported earlier in February.
