A verdict in Ibrahim Halawa's trial has been delayed for three weeks.

It had been hoped a verdict would have been delivered this morning.

The 21 year old has been in prison in Egypt for over 4 years, after he was arrested during political protests in Cairo in 2013.

His mass trial with almost 500 others has been delayed a number of times and it's thought the judges on the case needed more time to reach a verdict this time around.

The Egyptian President has previously told the Government he can't interfere with the trial but Ibrahim could be returned to Ireland once a verdict is delivered.
