739 Brotherhood members to appear in Egyptian court today

Some 739 Muslim Brotherhood members and leaders are to appear in an Egyptian court today charged following the events that took place at the Rabaa sit-in in 2013.

Judge Hassan Farid is due to preside over the court which will include the defendant Mohammed Badie, the supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Osama, ousted President Mohamed Morsi's son.

The group have been charged with organising an armed gathering and taking part in it in Rabaa Al-Adawiya, blocking streets, premeditated murder or civilians and police officers who tried to break up the sit-in and intentionally disrupting transport links.
