Egypt's public prosecutor ordered former President Mohamed Mursi and 34 other Islamists, to stand trial on charges including conspiring with foreign organizations to commit terrorist acts in Egypt and divulging military secrets to a foreign state. In a statement, the prosecutor said that Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood had committed acts of violence and terrorism in Egypt, and prepared a "terrorist plan" that included an alliance with the Palestinian group Hamas and Lebanon's Hezbollah. Mursi is already standing trial for inciting violence during protests outside the presidential palace a year ago when he was still in office.
