CAIRO: Giza Criminal Court decided to postpone Badie‘s trial, along with 11 other Muslim Brotherhood members, for the violent incidents at Istiqama Mosque, to May 5 to bring the defendants to the court.

The former Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood and the 11 other defendants are being tried for killing 9 people and the attempted murder of 21 others, as well as inciting violence and killing in the events following the July 3 ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi.

The first session of the trial was held on April 10.

Badie, along with 131 other defendants, also stands trial on Wednesday at the North Cairo Criminal Court for escaping Wadi el-Natroun prison, according to Youm7.
