They are also charged with shooting at police and residents of the neighborhood, possession of unlicensed firearms, ammunition and explosive materials, and resisting the authorities.
The court is convening at the Police Institute as its original premises lie in the middle of a residential area that is difficult to secure.
Investigators say the leaders of the Brotherhood summoned the defendants from Dakahliya, Sharqiya, Beni Suef, Giza and South Sinai to blow up the metro stations.
