CAIRO- Egypt on Saturday referred to trial deposed President Mohamed Morsi
and 129 others including members of the Palestinian group Hamas and
Lebanon's Hezbollah on charges including killing policemen, a statement
from the investigating judge said.
The case, related to a mass
prison break during the 2011 uprising against former President Hosni
Mubarak, marks the third set of charges brought against him since he was
ousted by the army in July following mass protests against his rule.
Earlier this week, the prosecutor ordered Morsi
and 35 other Muslim Brotherhood leaders to stand trial for conspiring
with foreigners to carry out a campaign of terrorism in Egypt.
The statement issued by Hassan al-Samir, the investigating judge, did not name any members of Hezbollah or Hamas.
