Human Rights Watch has called on Egypt's military-backed government to immediately release from detention five aides of Morsi.

The New York-based advocacy group said in a statement Sunday that the five have been held at an undisclosed destination since July 3, the day when the military ousted Morsi. 

It said the five were among nine close Morsi aides detained on July 3. The other four have been transferred to regular prisons and are facing criminal charges.
