CAIRO (AP) — Egypt state media is reporting that the country’s top prosecutor has referred ousted Mohammed Morsi to trial for conspiring with foreign  organisations, countries, espionage
and carrying out terrorist operations in the country.

The state news agency reported Wednesday that Morsi and 35 others, including the Muslim Brotherhood‘s top three leaders, are charged with revealing state secrets to a foreign country, sponsoring terrorism and carrying out military training and other acts that undermined Egypt’s stability and independence.

If found guilty, they could face the death penalty.

Morsi is already under investigatation over allegations he and the Brotherhood worked with the Palestinian militant group Hamas on a prison break that freed him and other members of the group during Egypt’s 2011 uprising. That attack killed 14 inmates.

Morsi is already on trial on other charges.
