The court statement read by judge Khaled Mahgoub on Sunday named two members of Morsi`s Muslim Brotherhood to be among the alleged conspirators in the attack on Wadi el-Natroun prison in January 2011.
It is the first statement by a court that holds the Brotherhood, Hamas and Hezbollah responsible for the attack on Wadi el-Natroun and two other prisons in which members of the Palestinian and Lebanese groups were held.
