CAIRO: Giza Criminal Court postponed Monday the trial of former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie, along with other MB leaders to June 9 in the case of clashes in Bahr Al-Azam, Giza, which left six dead and 101 injured.

The trial session was held at the Police Institute at Tora prison.

Last session held on April 12 was postponed to review footage of the incident.

According to court documents published by Youm7 in December, Mohamed Badie, Mohamed el-Beltagy, Essam el-Erian, Asem Abdel Magid, Safwat Hegazy and three others gathered a crowd on July 15, near the Giza police station.

The crowd then attacked residents of the area around Giza Square and the surrounding streets including the Bahr al-Azam Street and used firearms against residents and police, the court documents read.

The defendants are charged with first degree murder, damaging public and private property as well as illegal possession of firearms and white weapons.

The evidence against the defendants includes 19 witness statements in addition to forensic and criminal lab reports.
