Court in Egypt Adjourns NGO Worker Trial Until April - Report

An Egyptian court has adjourned the trial of several dozen NGO workers, including 16 Americans, after a chaotic opening session on Sunday, the Associated Press reports. The trial will begin again April 26.

The NGO workers, who include Sam LaHood, son of U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, are charged with operating non-governmental organizations without a license and with using illegal foreign funds to stir unrest. The Americans accused, seven of whom have been prevented from leaving Egypt, were not present in court, the AP reported.

 

The case has severely strained U.S. relations with Egypt.
