Six high-profile Muslim Brotherhood leaders will stand trial on 25 August by a court order issued Sunday for allegedly inciting the murder of protesters in Egypt.

A Cairo appeal court set the date for the defendants, which include the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie and his deputy Khairat El-Shater.

At least eight were killed in clashes in front of the Muslim Brotherhood’s headquarters in Cairo’s Moqattam on 1 July, which was stormed and ransacked by angry protesters.

El-Shater has been in detention since 6 July, while an arrest warrant was issued on 28 July for Badie.

On Wednesday, the prosecution ordered the detention of El-Shater, as well as former Brotherhood supreme guide Mahdy Akef; the group’s deputy leader Rashad Bayoumi; and Freedom and Justice Party leader Saad El-Katatni for another 15 days in Tora Prison pending investigations into charges of inciting the killing of protesters.

Several Brotherhood members and Islamist figures known for their close ties to the group have been slammed with travel bans in a crack-down on Islamist figures following the popularly-backed army removal of elected president Morsi on 3 July.

LOL!
It seems the comments on this site are edited by a morsi supporter, as the only comments we seem to read these days are comments that are negative towards the current regime and sympathize with morsi and his supporters.. it clearly does not show the real feeling in Egypt. NOTE TO AL AHRAM: There are other online newspapers in English from Egypt available!

A politized Justice system run by Mubarak's men
Since Egypt's justice system had any credibility. This system anulled the results of the first democratic legislative election in Egypt's history because the Islamists won. It was about to declare Mursi's election victory nul and void . It is a politicized system par excellance. And now it is now trying the victims of this fascist coup.
