Two more top aides of ousted president Mohamed Morsi have been remanded into custody over charges of inciting violence.

The prosecution accuses Ahmed Abdel-Aati, director of Morsi's office, and Ayman Hodhod, the presidential security adviser, of inciting violence outside the Ittihadiya presidential palace.

On Sunday, Ambassador Mohammed Refa'a al-Tahtawi, the Chief of Staff of the deposed president, and his deputy Ahmed Shiha were remanded into custody for 15 days in connection on similar charges.

They were transferred to Cairo's Tora Prison a day later.

At a July 26 meeting with an Egyptian human rights delegation, al-Tahtawi and Shiha complained that they did know where they were being held and were being denied contact with their families and lawyers.
