2118 GMT:The Egyptians judges presiding over the trial of 43 people, including 16 American citizens, whose NGOs are charged with manipulating the political and electoral process have refused to hear the case.

This may give room for US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to negotiate the release of the Americans.
