Deposed Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and 132 others,including members of Hamas and Hezbollah,will face trial for a prison break and murder of police officers during the 2011 uprising that ended the nearly three-decade regime of Hosni Mubarak.
This will be the third trial for Morsi,who faces separate charges of inciting murder of protesters at the presidential palace in December 2012 and of espionage and conspiring with foreign groups to commit terror acts.

Morsi,members of the Palestinian militant group Hamas,the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood are accused of storming prisons and murdering police officers.
He is already in jail for alleged involvement in the killing of opposition protesters.
