A military trial of 40 senior members of Egypt's most powerful opposition group who are charged with terrorism and money laundering resumed Sunday, the group's attorney and a court official said. The trial is part of an ongoing government crackdown against the Muslim Brotherhood, whose members hold almost 20 percent of the seats in the country's parliament and pose the most significant challenge to President Hosni Mubarak's regime. Over 100 Arab and Western lawyers arrived at the military base north of Cairo where Sunday's session took place to represent the defendants, but only a few were allowed into the courtroom, said Abdel Moneim Abdel Maksoud, a member of the group's defense team. Defense attorneys boycotted the trial's first session on April 26, arguing they hadn't been notified of the start date.
