A nephew of Egypt's late President Anwar Sadat will face a military trial this week after he called his uncle's death an international conspiracy, judicial officials said Sunday. A military prosecutor charged Talaat Sadat, who also is an opposition lawmaker, with "spreading false rumors and insulting the armed forces" after questioning him for six hours on Saturday, the officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to make statements to the media. His trial is scheduled to begin on October 11, they said. Talaat Sadat in a telephone interview Sunday denied the charges, saying the Egyptian regime wants to "get rid" of him because he expresses opposition. Anwar Sadat was killed by Islamic militants opposed to Sadat's landmark peace treaty with Israel during a military parade in Cairo on Oct. 6, 1981.
