CAIRO - An Egyptian prosecutor has referred to a military court 187 alleged Muslim Brotherhood supporters who are accused of killing police officers in a 2013 attack on a police station.

The 187 are accused of storming Maghagha police station in the southern province of Minya in August 2013, weeks after Mursi's removal, North Minya public prosecutor Abdelraheem Malik told Reuters late on Saturday.

He did not specify how many of the 187 were already in custody.

They face charges of murder and attempted murder of members of the police, possessing weapons, and joining a banned group, Malik said.
