Egypt's criminal court released on Monday a journalist accused of shooting a video showing masked men vowing to target police facilities in southern Cairo.
The journalist, Alyaa Awad, who was arrested in Alexandria in September 2014, works for the pro-Muslim Brotherhood news portal Rassd.
In August 2014, the self-proclaimed Kataeb Helwan (Helwan Brigades) militia appeared in a video published and circulated on social media networks in which they vowed to target all police facilities in Helwan, a southern suburb of Cairo.
Awad is among 215 supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohamed Morsi who are being tried in the Helwan Brigades case.
The defendants are charged with belonging to an outlawed group "calling for the violation of the constitution and the law, preventing the state from exercising its role, assaulting personal freedoms of citizens and harming national unity and social peace," according to judicial sources.
An administrative court refused on Sunday a lawsuit calling for the shutting down of the pro-Brotherhood Rassd news portal.
The lawsuit accused Rassd owner Amr Farrag of "spreading false news" aimed at attacking the state and its apparatuses.
