The judges presiding over the trial of Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie and two deputies withdrew from trial proceedings on Tuesday.

Under Egyptian law, judges can recuse themselves from a trial without providing reasons for the move.

Badie, along with leading aides Khairat al-Shater and Rashad al-Bayoumi, face charges of incitement to murder in relation to clashes outside the Muslim Brotherhood's Cairo headquarters on June 30 that left nine people dead.

The three defendants did not attend Tuesday's court session for what authorities said were "security reasons."
