A judge on Wednesday rejected an appeal for the release of suspects detained at clashes outside the Guidance Bureau headquarters, reported state-owned Al-Ahram.

The 28 suspects are accused of firing live ammunition at unarmed protesters from within the Muslim Brotherhood Guidance Bureau headquarters in Moqattam on 30 June.

Muslim Brotherhood leaders Khairat Al-Shater, Saad Al-Katatni, Rashed Al-Bayoumi and Mahdi Akef, currently detained at Torha prison, have also appealed for release.

Al-Ahram has reported that Judge Tamer Al-Arabi, head of the South-Cairo prosecution along with a team from the South-Cairo Court, will issue a decision regarding their appeal on Wednesday.
