Cairo - Egypt's deposed Islamist president Mohammed Morsi called on his followers on Saturday to continue their "peaceful revolution", during his trial on charges related to jailbreaks and attacks on police.

Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood still stages diminishing weekly protests despite a crackdown that has killed more than 1 400 people since the military overthrew him in July.

The court adjourned the trial, one of four for Morsi, until 24 February.

A defiant Morsi had interrupted past hearings to declare that he was still Egypt's president, having been democratically elected a year before his overthrow.

"The revolution of the people won't stop - continue your peaceful revolution," he said from the dock on Saturday.
