The trial of the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader, Mohamed Badie, and two of his deputies on charges of inciting deadly violence during the protests that preceded the army’s overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi was adjourned Sunday minutes after it opened.
Officials say the three men were not brought to the courtroom for security reasons.
The next session will be held October 29.
Badie has been seen by some as the driving force behind the presidency of Mr. Morsi, who was ousted by Egypt’s military July 3 after days of large-scale demonstrations by Egyptians unhappy with his rule.
