More civilian courts-martial

250 defendants were referred Saturday to military court in Minya on charges of storming and torching a post office in 2013.

The general prosecution in Minya also charged the defendants with joining “a terrorist organisation”, violating the protest law, resisting authorities, and inciting violence and riots, according to the state-run Egyptian Radio and Television Union.

So reports Daily News (Egypt).

At least 2,100 civilians have been referred to military courts since the army ousted president Mohamed Morsi on 3 July 2013, according to NGOs and media reports.
