Another Egyptian military trial for civilians

The Daily News (Egypt) has this story about a military court trial of Egyptian and Sudanese civilians. They are charged with "being present in a restricted area, attempting to illegally pass the border, and possessing live ammunition without a permit." "Because the defendants are civilians, No Military Trials [for Civilians, an NGO] said they should be tried in front of a civilian court instead of a military court[]."
