CAIRO - A court postponed on Monday the case of former Interior Minister Habib al-Adli over the killing of protesters until next week so it will coincide with the start of the trial of ousted President Hosni Mubarak and his sons, state media reported.

The case will be postponed until Aug. 3, the state-owned Nile News reported. The trial of Mubarak and his two sons, Alaa and Gamal, who was once seen as a future president, over the killing of demonstrators starts on that date.

Adli is reviled by protesters after the police force he commanded fired live ammunition, teargas and water cannon to try to break up protests against Mubarak, who was forced out of office in February after 18 days of demonstrations.

Mubarak, 83, has been hospitalised since April, when he was first questioned. His health has been a frequent focus for speculation. Sources told Reuters this month his trial was likely to take place in the Red Sea resort of Sharm e-Sheikh where he is in hospital, and not in Cairo.
