Egypt to Investigate Morsi's 2011 Jailbreak


Egyptian prosecutors will investigate allegations that former president Mohammed Morsi escaped from prison during the 2011 revolution with help from the Hamas terrorist group, officials said Thursday.

According to the officials, Chief prosecutor Hesham Barakat has received testimonies from a court in the Suez Canal city of Ismailia that will be the base for an investigation by state security prosecutors into the jailbreak by Morsi and more than 30 other leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood movement.
