An Egyptian criminal court on Sunday postponed the case against the Muslim Brotherhood's Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie and a number of the group's top members for inciting murder outside of a Giza mosque last year to 7 August.
Badie and 13 other Brotherhood members were sentenced to death in June for inciting murder during clashes that took place outside Giza's Al-Istiqama Mosque shortly after the ouster of the president Mohamed Morsi, who hails from the Brotherhood.
The violence was part of nationwide unrest that erupted after the bloody dispersal of two pro-Morsi protest camps in Cairo which left hundreds dead.
Among the defendants in the trial are Brotherhood leading members Safwat Hegazi and Mohamed El-Beltagy.
This is the second death sentence for Badie to be upheld by the court.
Also in June, he and 182 others were sentenced to death for inciting violence and murder as well attacking a police station and killing a police officer during last summer's unrest.
He was sentenced to life in prison along with 35 other Brotherhood members in a separate case on charges of inciting violence and blocking the Qalyubia highway last August.
