      Morsi on Trial for Conspiracy with Hamas and Hezbollah

      National Post reports Egypt’s top prosecutor Wednesday referred toppled Islamist president Mohammed Morsi to trial on charges he conspired with the Palestinian group Hamas, Lebanon’s Hezbollah and others to carry out a campaign of terrorist violence to destabilize the country after his ouster.

      The charges, which carry a potential death penalty, adds National Post, are the most sweeping and heaviest accusations yet in charges levelled against the Brotherhood.
