Al-Qaeda Head's Brother to Face Trial in Egypt

Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri's brother is to stand trial with 67 others for forming a "terrorist group" and plotting attacks after Islamist president Mohammed Morsi's ouster, AFP reported Sunday, citing Egyptian state media.

Mohammed al-Zawahiri was arrested last August, a month after Morsi's ouster by the army, and has been called to go on trial by the state prosecutor, the report said.
