Muslim Brotherhood`s top leaders referred to criminal court
Cairo: Egyptian authorities have decided to refer Mohamed Badei, the top leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, and his two deputies to a criminal court on charges of inciting violence, state-run al-Ahram Online reported.
Egypt`s prosecution referred the group`s general guide and the two deputies -- Khairat al-Shater and Rashad al-Bayoumi -- to trial for provocating violent acts in June outside the movement`s headquarters in Cairo, in which at least eight people were killed.
Badei, who has not been arrested, was referred to stand trial in absentia, despite a warrant issued against him, said Xinhua.
