CAIRO, Sept 26 (MENA) - Port Said Criminal Court decided on Thursday to adjourn to October 24 the retrial of 47 leaders and members of the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood (MB) group, including the group leader Mohamed Badie.

The defendants are charged with committing acts of incitement, violence and murder in a case known in the media as Arab police station incidents in Port Said in 2013.

The Court of Cassation revoked in May verdicts ranging between harsh imprisonment and life sentences for the defendants and ordered their retrial.

In August 2015, the Port Said Criminal Court handed down life sentences against MB leaders Badie, Mohamed el Beltagi and Safwat Hegazy over incitement to storm the Arab police station to kill policemen.
