In Egypt, leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood are being charged with inciting violence in the days after Islamist President Mohammed Morsi was ousted by the Egyptian military.

But it's not just supporters of Morsi who are being targeted.

Andrew Hosken of the BBC reports that members of the media who are seen as sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood are also facing a crackdown.

This segment aired on July 12, 2013.
