CAIRO - The cases of 40 people embroiled in a dispute over the activities of US-funded pro-democracy groups and other organizations have been transferred to the Cairo criminal court, a judicial source said on Sunday.

"The cases of 40 foreign and Egyptian suspects have been transferred to the Cairo criminal court related to foreign funding," the judicial source told Reuters.

He did not give details of the foreigners' nationalities but several US citizens are involved in the case of non-governmental organizations and face travel bans.
