Two prominent Egyptian secular activists will stand trial on Sunday for allegedly taking part in a violent and unauthorised protest under a disputed new law, judicial sources said.

The two, Ahmed Maher and Ahmed Douma, were arrested after a scuffle between Maher's supporters and security men outside a Cairo court last week, as Maher handed himself in for questioning on suspicion he had organised an illegal protest.
