CAIRO: Cairo Criminal Court has adjourned to January 10 the trial of 23 defendants allegedly involved in the clashes erupted in Cairo’s southern district of Kerdasa in 2013.
The court is scheduled to hear testimonies of witnesses.
The court also referred the defendants to the Forensic Medicine Authority to verify their mental health.
The incidents date back to July 3, 2013 when the defendants gathered outside the Kersada police station and clashed with security forces, Youm7 Reporter Amer Mostafa told The Cairo Post Wednesday.
The clashes coincided with the ouster of the former President Mohamed Morsi in July 3.
Mostafa said that 15 of the defendants are in custody, while eight are at large.
