GIZA: Giza Criminal Court overturned the appeal of 29 alleged Muslim Brotherhood defendants on Thursday, and renewed their imprisonment for 45 days on charges of committing violent acts and terrorizing citizens on Bahr el-A’zam Street in Giza.

The street is in the area neighboring Nahda Square, which was the site of the violent dispersal of the sit-in there.

The clashes, which took place after the ouster of Mohamed Morsi, between the pro-Morsi and security forces, led the death of seven persons and the injury of another 100.

The prosecution accused the defendants of murder, possessing weapons, blocking the road, suspending traffic, damaging public and private properties deliberately, terrorizing people and being affiliated to a terrorist group.
