Muslim Brotherhood leaders charged with murder, terrorism


Cairo – Local media reported on Tuesday that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood’s General Guide, Mohamed Badie, and some other prominent figures in the group, are standing trial in criminal court over alleged wide range of crimes.
The defendants were accused of militant assemble, blocking public roads, murder, targeting policemen, assaulting government institutions, terrorism and illegal possession of weapons.
The case dates back to Aug. 14, 2013, when security forces cleared one of the most outstanding pro-ousted President Mohamed Morsi protests.
Nearly 1,000 Mors supporters were killed during the operation.

The prosecution in a statement said the accused persons organised sit-in that terrorised the citizenry and hindered daily life in the capital.
Since the ouster of Morsi by the army in 2013 in response to mass protests against his rule, hundreds of his Brotherhood loyalists have been facing trials over violence and murder.
Morsi, along with Badie on June 18, were sentenced to death over a mass jailbreak during the country’s 2011 political turmoil.
They also face other trials over spying and insulting the judiciary. (Xinhua/NAN)
