Egypt prosecutor orders trial of 919 Muslim Brotherhood members

Egypt’s state prosecutor has ordered the trial of 919 Muslim Brotherhood supporters who are being charged with terrorism and murder, according to the country’s state news agency. 

The announcement was made shortly after 528 Morsi supporters were sentenced to death, having been charged with the killing of a policeman when a station was attacked last summer. 

On Wednesday protesters – the majority of whom were university students – took to the streets in anger at the death sentences. 

The rallies quickly became violent, and one 18-year-old was killed at Cairo University, according to the country’s Health Ministry.
