Brotherhood planned Morsi jailbreak: Egypt court
Cairo: An Egyptian court says Muslim Brotherhood members conspired with Hamas, Hezbollah and local militants to storm a prison in 2011 and free 34 Brotherhood leaders, including President Mohammed Morsi.
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.
Morsi and other Brotherhood leaders have maintained that they were freed by local residents. Hamas, the Palestinian chapter of the Brotherhood, has denied involvement in the attacks on prisons.
