Morsi to Be Tried for "Inciting Killing, Thuggery;" Ousted Egyptian Head Expanded His Pres. Powers

A state prosecutor decided today (September 1, 2013) that ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi is headed to court along with 14 other Muslim Brotherhood members for "committing acts of violence, and inciting killing and thuggery," according to the Newser website.

The charges relate to violent protests outside the presidential palace last December, after Morsi expanded his own presidential powers.

Morsi is accused of inciting his supporters to kill and beat the protesters.

He is also being investigated over his 2011 prison break, in which he has been accused of murder and conspiring with Hamas, but no charges have been brought in that case yet.
