Retrial of Ikhwan leaders tops coverage of Egypt in international headlines

Retrial of Ikhwan leaders tops coverage of Egypt in international headlines: The Cairo Criminal Court ordered yesterday the retrial of Ikhwan leader Mohammed Badie and deputy Khairat El Shater, and several others, over violence-related charges from 2013. The first hearing has been scheduled for 7 October, Reuters says, citing the state news agency. The story is topping coverage of Egypt in the foreign press on what is otherwise a very slow morning.

A close second was the sentencing of activist Amal Fathy to two years in prison for “spreading false news,”which CNN carried today. He story had made top headlines yesterday.
