-ROMA, 21 GIU-The trial against Egyptian researcher Patrick Zaki, who was at the University of Bologna in Italy before being arrested by Egyptian authorities on his return to his country, was postponed to September 27.

Zaki told ANSA on Tuesday morning after a recent hearing in the Egyptian city of Mansoura.
