Morsi’s ‘Inciting Violence’ Case Adjourned One Day

Big 5

The trial of ousted president Mohamed Morsi on charges of inciting violence has been adjourned to Sunday to allow the court to listen to the prosecution.

Morsi and 14 others are standing trial for their role in clashes between Islamist supporters and opponents outside Cairo’s Ittihadiya presidential palace in December 2012.

At least 10 people were killed during protests triggered by a presidential decree that expanded Morsi’s powers beyond judicial review.

Morsi, who was removed from power by the army in July 2013 amid nationwide protests against his year-long rule, also faces a number of other charges in separate trials, including espionage and breaking out of prison in the January 2011 uprising.
