A Kafr El-Sheikh misdemeanour court acquitted on Wednesday 70 Pro-Morsi supporters from several chargers including unauthorised protesting and being members of a terrorist organisation, Reuters' Aswat Masriya reported. 

The 70 Pro-Morsi supporters were arrested from their homes, shops and work in the past several months from several places in Kafr El-Sheikh governorate, according to the arrest warrant issued by General Prosecution. 

The prosecution accused them of illegal protesting, incitement, rioting and belonging to a terrorist organisation. 

Earlier this month another Kafr El-Sheikh court acquitted 100 Pro-Morsi supporters on similiar charges. Recently other courts in Cairo and Assuit also did the same.

The Muslim Brotherhood was designated as a terrorist organisation by the Egyptian government last December. 

Following former president Mohamed Morsi's ouster in July 2013, thousands of Brotherhood members and their supporters have been arrested and put on trial, including Morsi and other members of top leadership.
