Egypt to try former President Mohamed Morsy for inciting murder

Former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy will stand trial on charges of incitement to conduct murder and "thuggery" relating to clashes near the presidential palace late last year, state-run MENA reported Sunday.

The country's general prosecutor ordered Morsy to stand trial along with 14 members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the news agency said.

No date was given for the trial.

    They forgot a charge or 2 i think. Shouldn't he be charged with the bad weather too? Sheesh! Guess they're just big on making up crimes as they go.

    Muslim terrorist! He should never be let out on streets... not without a pine box. Morsi is a murderer who sent his goons to burn Coptic churches.
