Egypt Brotherhood detainee on hunger strike

Son of Muslim Brotherhood leader unable to stand after being on hunger strike for more than 100 days.

    In Egypt, the trial of the spiritual leader of the Muslim brotherhood has been adjourned until June 10. Mohammed Badie and 16 others are accused of killing protesters.

    Thousands of other people, including activists and journalists, have been detained by the authorities over the last year, often without trial.

    Al Jazeera's Stefanie Dekker reports on one American Egyptian, who is the son of a Brotherhood leader and is currently on hunger strike over the charges.
