In his first verdict in the trial against the alleged masterminds of the Battle of the Camel, Judge Mustafa Hassan Abdullah ruled to cancel the live broadcast of the trial. He promptly suspended the session until all television equipment is removed from the courtroom.
The Battle of the Camel took place on 1-2 February, during the 18-day revolt in Tahrir Square, where an unidentified group raided the square riding camels and horses in efforts to force protesters out of Tahrir.
Investigations reveal former regime officials were involved in organising the attacks.
Those facing charges include former head of parliament, Fathi Sorour, former head of the upper house and former secretary general of the ousted National Democratic Party, Safwat El-Sherif and former minister of manpower and immigration Aisha Abdel Hadi.
