More charges for former president

Egypt has referred to trial deposed President Mohamed Mursi and 129 others, including members of Hamas and Hezbollah, on murder and other charges related to a mass jail break during the 2011 uprising against Hosni Mubarak.

These are the third set of charges brought against Mursi since he was ousted by the army in July amid street protests against his rule. Earlier last week, the prosecutor ordered Mursi and 35 other Muslim Brotherhood leaders to stand trial in a separate case that could result in the death penalty for Mursi and his colleagues.
