CAIRO:  Shubra Criminal Court postponed Wednesday the trial of Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie to May 10 in order to hear the defense in the “Qalyub Highway case”, Youm7 reported.

Badie and 47 other defendants, including Muslim Brotherhood leaders, are charged with blocking the Qalyub Highway and causing the death of three citizens following the July 3, 2013 ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi.

The defendants in the case are charged with murder, blocking roads, possessing weapons, spreading chaos and thuggery.
