Egypt’s public prosecutor referred four senior members of the Muslim Brotherhood to State Security Prosecution on charges of incitement to attack protesters in front of the presidential palace in Cairo last month.

The defendants include Mohamed Badea, the Brotherhood’s supreme guide, millionaire businessman Khairat el-Shater, the deputy head of the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice party, Essam el-Erian, and the party’s Secretary General Mohamed Saad al-Katatny, the state-run Ahram Gate website reported today.
