Morsi trial on November 4
CAIRO –– Egypt’s ousted President Mohammed Morsi is to go on trial on November 4 on charges of inciting murder and violence, state media has reported.
The charges relate to the deaths of at least seven people during clashes between opposition protesters and Muslim Brotherhood supporters outside a presidential palace in Cairo last year.
Morsi will stand trial with 14 other senior figures from the Brotherhood. He has been detained at a secret location since being deposed on July 3.
Hundreds of people demanding his reinstatement –– mostly Brotherhood supporters –– have since been killed in clashes with security forces. More than 50 died at protests held in several cities on Sunday. (BBC)
