A clearly Photoshopped image and a pop song were presented as evidence against three journalists, including Egyptian-Canadian Mohamed Fahmy, in their terrorism trial in Cairo Thursday.
One photo showed Fahmy but the former leader of Egypt's Higher Military Council, Mohammed Hussein Tantawi, had been Photoshopped into the image.
U.K. Guardian correspondent Patrick Kingsley, who was live-tweeting from the court, noted the prosecution offered it as evidence but didn't comment on it and didn't say who may have altered the image.
BBC and Voice of America broadcasts were shown to the court, as well as an interview Fahmy did with political activist Mohamed Aboulghar, back when Fahmy worked for CNN.
As well, a poor recording of the Gotye song Somebody That I Used To Know was presented to the court. Again, no explanation was given.
An engineer who helped prepare the evidence said he did so without analyzing it and couldn't say whether it pointed to the journalists' guilt, Kingsley reported.
"Why did you sign saying this was incriminating evidence when you're now saying you can't assess it because you're just an engineer?" Fahmy's lawyer asked him.
Fahmy was working as a producer for Al Jazeera in Egypt when he, fellow producer Baher Mohamed and Australian correspondent Peter Greste were arrested Dec. 29. They're accused of being members of a terrorist group, inciting violence and possessing unlicensed broadcasting equipment.
All three deny the charges.
Fahmy's family said on his Twitter account that if he is found guilty, he faces 15 years in prison.
The case was adjourned until June 1.
