Egypt's Cairo Criminal Court has decided Sunday to level new charges against 13 defendants implicated in the Muslim Brotherhood office incidents in 2013. 

The court accused MB former supreme guide Mohamed Badie, his deputy the businessman Khairat al-Shater and seven other defendants of inciting assaults against protesters outside the MB office in return for money or hajj visas. 

They also face charges of supplying attackers with weapons. 

The court accused two other defendants of beating and injuring 74 of the protesters who had gathered outside the MB office on June 30- July 1, 2013. 

The court delayed the trial until October 7 to listen to pleadings by the defense team.
