Egypt's court withdraws from Muslim Brotherhood chief's trial
Tuesday October 29, 2013 5:44 PM, IANS

The Cairo Criminal Court Tuesday withdrew from the trial of Muslim Brotherhood chief Mohamed Badie and his two deputies, citing "uneasiness", media said.

The court decided to file the case to the Cairo Appeal Court for it to designate another court to consider it, Xinhua reported citing MENA news agency.

Badie, the Brotherhood's supreme guide, and two of his aides, Khairat al-Shater and Rashad Bayoumi, are accused of killing, inciting violence against protestors and illegally possessing explosives and weapons.

They are accused of inciting violence against protestors surrounding the Brotherhood headquarters in Moqattam district of Cairo on June 30, which left nine people killed and more than 90 wounded.

This led to the ouster of then President Mohamed Morsi, a Brotherhood member.

The trial of Morsi and 14 other top members of Brotherhood is set for Nov 4 over charges of violence and killing protestors.
