Egypt judge dismisses videos in Al-Jazeera trial

CAIRO (AP) — An Egyptian judge has dismissed videos presented by the prosecution as evidence in the trial of three Al-Jazeera journalists on terrorism charges.

The Thursday hearing saw footage, allegedly filmed by the detained journalists, which included a documentary on Somalia, a Kenyan press conference and another wildlife video.

The judge dismissed the footage on the grounds it is not related to the charges, which include providing a platform to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group.

The journalists, award-winning Australian correspondent Peter Greste, Canadian-Egyptian acting bureau chief Mohammed Fahmy and Egyptian Baher Mohammed, worked for the Qatar-based broadcaster's English language channel.

Fahmy said he does not understand the reason for the trial, shouting from behind the bars of the defendants' cage: "this is a joke!"

The trial was adjourned to April 22.
