An Egyptian court has ordered the release of two leaders from Egypt's largest Muslim activist group after being jailed for organizing pro-reform protests, police officials and the group's Web site said Monday. The two Muslim Brotherhood leaders were among more than 500 members detained by authorities in May after the group led demonstrations in support of two reformist judges. The court approved the release of prominent Brotherhood figures Essam el-Erian and Mohammed Morsi, and nine other members, said a police official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to make statements to the media.
