Cairo's Criminal Court postponed Saturday the trial of Gamal Hussein Ahmed, the 49-year-old accused of throwing a fire bomb at a Jewish synagogue in Cairo.

The trial was rescheduled for Tuesday, 18 January.  

Ahmed was arrested in February 2010, accused of throwing the fire bomb from the terrace of an opposing hotel in Downtown Cairo. 

The synagogue is used by Jews living in Egypt, though in number they do not exceed tens, and is visited by Israeli tourists.
