CAIRO – 16 October 2017: The Military Prosecution referred 304 persons, including member of the Brotherhood's guidance office, Mohammed Ali Beshr, to military trial on Monday over charges of their involvement in the Hasm Movement.
Hasm has claimed responsibility for a number of attacks against Egyptian security personnel in recent months, mostly targeting police checkpoints since the ousting of former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in 2013, killing many members of the police and army.
Egyptian security forces have arrested and killed dozens of suspected Hasm members in the past few months.
Last February, an Egyptian court of urgent matters designated the militant group Hasm a terrorist organization, banning its activity in the country.
In January, Egypt's High State Security Prosecution referred 304 people to military prosecution for their membership in Hasm, which committed 14 attacks targeting security forces and public figures over the past six months.
