London – Ousted Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi will face a third criminal trial on charges of organizing prison breaks during the 2011 uprising,

Morsi, including 130 others, are accused of murder after he was freed from a Cairo prison at the beginning of the uprising against President Hosni Mubarak .

According to the BBC, Morsi is already facing trial for allegedly inciting the killings of opposition activists during his one-year in power.

The latest charges against Morsi relate to a mass breakout from a Cairo jail in January 2011.

Prosecutors claim that members of the Muslim Brotherhood attacked prisons and police stations during the first few days of the revolt against Mubarak, the report said.

Thousands of inmates, including Morsi, had escaped and several policemen were killed.

Morsi will face trial for their murder, together with co-defendants from the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and Hezbollah, the report added.
