Court adjourns Second Rafah Massacre Case

The Cairo Criminal Court, held at the Police Academy on Thursday, adjourned the trial of 35 defendants, including Adel Habbara, all accused killing 25 recruits of the Central Security Forces on the Arish-Rafah highway.

The case is known as the Second Rafah Massacre.
The defendants are also accused of attempting to murder Central Security forces in Belbeis and of spying for al Qaeda in Iraq. 
The court confirmed the attendance of the prosecution witnesses no. 18, 19 and 20. And when the defense questioned the identity of witness no. 18, the judge allowed it to check his ID card, which was correct.
Witness no. 19 said all he remembers is that he and other recruits went to disperse riots but does not remember any details. He also said that he was wounded when their van flipped and did not know how he ended up in hospital.
