Ousted Egyptian leader Mohamed Morsi arrived in court in Cairo on Tuesday, state media reported. He was on trial for his escape from prison in 2011.

Another 130 other people are also on trial as participants in the mass breakout from Wadi al-Natrun prison, allegedly organized by Morsi.

Egypt's first freely-elected president was deposed in July 2013 in a military coup following mass protests against his rule.
