Egypt to investigate Morsi for 2011 jailbreak

Officials say prosecutors will investigate allegations that Egypt's ousted president escaped from prison during the 2011 revolution with help from the Palestinian militant group Hamas.

 

The officials say chief prosecutor Hesham Barakat has collected testimonies from a court in the Suez Canal city of Ismailia that will be the base for an investigation by state security prosecutors into the jailbreak by Mohammed Morsi and more than 30 other Muslim Brotherhood leaders. (AP)
