Egypt sets November trial date for Morsi

The trial of Egypt’s deposed President Mohamed Morsi on charges of inciting the murder of protesters will start on November 4, the official MENA news agency reported.

Morsi will stand trial with 14 other defendants over the killings of protesters outside his presidential palace in December 2012, almost six months before his overthrow in a military coup.

At least 10 people were killed in the clashes on December 5 between Morsi loyalists and opponents after he passed a temporary decree placing his decisions beyond judicial review.

Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood claimed that most of those killed were Islamists. The clashes broke out after Brotherhood supporters dispersed a sit-in outside the palace by Morsi’s secular-leaning opponents.

Morsi’s co-defendants will include several of his aides and Brotherhood leaders.

The military has detained Morsi in a secret location since his overthrow on July 3. His supporters and opponents of military rule have demonstrated across the country since.

Hundreds of people have died in clashes with security forces and many Brotherhood figures have been arrested.
