CAIRO, Dec. 11 (Xinhua) -- The Cairo Criminal Court on Wednesday withdrew again from the trial of Muslim Brotherhood chief Mohamed Badie and his two deputies over killing protesters, citing disorder in the courtroom, official news agency MENA reported.

On Oct. 29, the same court in another circuit quitted them from the first trial citing "uneasiness."

Top leaders of Muslim Brotherhood (MB) appeared on Wednesday in an Egyptian criminal court over killing the peaceful protesters in July.

The trial included Mohammed Badie, the Brotherhood's Supreme Guide, and two of his aides, Khairat al-Shater and Rashad Bayoumi, and the chief of the MB's Freedom and Justice Party Mohamed Saad al-Katatni.

They are particularly accused of killing, inciting violence against protesters surrounding the Brotherhood headquarters in Moqattam district of Cairo during the June 30 protests, which left nine killed and more than 90 wounded.
