Egypt court again withdraws from Muslim Brotherhood trial

Cairo, Dec 11 : The Cairo Criminal Court Wednesday withdrew again from the trial of Muslim Brotherhood chief Mohamed Badie and his two deputies over killing protesters, citing disorder in the courtroom.

On Oct 29, the same court in another circuit withdrew from the first trial citing "uneasiness."

Top leaders of Muslim Brotherhood (MB) appeared Wednesday in an Egyptian criminal court over killing the peaceful protesters in July, Xinhua reported citing official news agency MENA.

The trial included Mohammed Badie, the Brotherhood's supreme guide, and two of his aides, Khairat al-Shater and Rashad Bayoumi, and the chief of the MB's Freedom and Justice Party Mohamed Saad al-Katatni.

They are particularly accused of killing, inciting violence against protesters surrounding the Brotherhood headquarters in Moqattam district of Cairo during the June 30 protests, which left nine people killed and more than 90 injured.
