Egypt puts Morsi and others on trial

Egypt's public prosecutor ordered former President Mohamed Morsi and 35 other Islamists to stand trial on charges including conspiring with foreign groups to commit terrorist acts in Egypt and divulging military secrets to a foreign state. The charges leveled against Morsi and other top Muslim Brotherhood members on Wednesday could result in their execution. In a statement, the prosecutor said the Brotherhood had committed acts of violence and terrorism in Egypt and prepared a 'terrorist plan' that included an alliance with the Palestinian group Hamas and Lebanon's Hezbollah. It accused the Brotherhood of carrying out attacks on security forces in North Sinai after he was deposed on July 3.
