Three judges presiding over the trial of Egypt's senior Muslim Brotherhood members stepped down Wednesday after the defendants disrupted the proceedings and chanted against the judiciary – a move that will delay proceedings against the group's top leadership.
It was the second time judges recluse themselves from the same case. A previous panel stepped down in October after police failed to bring defendants into the courtroom because they could not secure it. The move was at the time seen as a criticism of the trial. (AP)
