The retrial of detained blogger Maikel Nabil has been postponed to 14 December by the military prosecution at the C28 military court. This is the fifth time his retrial has been delayed.

Nabil was sentenced to three years in prison by a military court in April after criticising the Army's role in the revolution in a blog post entitled "The Army and the people were never one hand."

To protest his sentence, Nabil went on hunger strike and has abstained from food for over 100 days.

Currently more than 12,000 Egyptian citizens are languishing in prison after being tried by military courts since 28 January.
