Morsi in court again
(01-08 16:10)

Egypt's ousted president Mohamed Morsi on Wednesday morning arrived at the courthouse in Cairo for the second session of his trial over charges of inciting killing protesters outside presidential palace during his rule, state TV reported.
Morsi stands trial along with another 14 Muslim Brotherhood top leaders on charges of inciting clashes between his supporters and opponents outside the presidential palace in Cairo in December 2012, which left at least seven people dead.
The Islamist leader also faces charges of espionage, revealing classified military information to foreign bodies including Palestinian Islamic Movement Hamas, as well as financing terrorism.
He will go on trial on Jan. 28 over charges of 2011 jailbreak along with more than 130 members of the Brotherhood, Hamas and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah. They are accused of storming Wady al-Natroun prison and kidnapping and killing police officers during the 2011 uprising that toppled his predecessor Honsi Mubarak.
On Dec. 25, Egypt's interim government announced Morsi's Brotherhood "a terrorist group," a day after a blast targeting a security department headquarters at Daqahliya province killed at least 17 people. --Xinhua
