CAIRO - Egypt's public prosecutor charged 200 suspected Islamist militants on Saturday with "founding, leading and joining a terrorist organization" and launching bomb and rocket attacks across the country.

The accused belong to Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, or Supporters of Jerusalem, a group that has claimed some of the deadliest attacks of the last nine months and is listed as a terrorist organization by the United States.

The prosecutor's statement said 102 of those charged were in government custody with the rest on the run.
