The Egyptian army has announced that former President Mohammed Morsy is no longer being held in ‘protective custody.’ He’s being charged with murder and conspiring with Hamas.
State news agency Mena said the mooted charges against Morsi included conspiring with the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, killing prisoners and officers “deliberately with prior intent”, kidnapping officers and soldiers, and setting fire to the prison of Wadi el-Natroun.
They relate to his escape from the prison in 2011, when he was arrested during the uprising against Mubarak, and provide legal grounds for his continued detention. .
..and this is very odd. was Stevens a pawn in a hostage swap agreement between Obama and Morsi?
