Egypt’s Morsi faces death penalty in spy, jailbreak trials


CAIRO: Egypt’s ousted president Mohamed Morsi, already jailed for 20 years for inciting violence against protesters, faces the death penalty Saturday for espionage and jailbreak nearly two years after his overthrow. The country’s first freely elected president was ousted by then army chief and now President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in July 2013 following mass street protests demanding the Islamist’s resignation after just a year in power.
