Cairo, 27 January (AKI) - Ousted president Mohamed Morsi's trial for breaking out of prison during Egypt's 2011 uprising will be aired Tuesday on state-run TV, the head of Cairo's criminal court said, cited by Al-Ahram Online.

Morsi and the 130 co-defendants are charged with collaborating with Palestinian Islamist group Hamas and Lebanese Shia group Hezbollah to escape from Wadi El-Natroun prison as well as attempting to murder police officers.

The jailbreak took place during the January 2011 revolt against the rule of longtime strongman Hosni Mubarak.

Alongside Morsi, senior Brotherhood leaders Mohamed Saad El-Katatni, Essam El-Erian, Mohamed El-Beltagy and Safwat Hegazy will be on trial at the heavy guarded police academy in the eastern New Cairo district, Al-Ahram said

Several Hamas and Hezbollah members have also been named among the defendants in the case, according Al-Ahram.

Morsi's November trial was for separate charges of inciting murder and violence during clashes between his supporters and opponents at the Ittihadiya presidential palace on 4 December 2012.

Ten people died in the clashes.

Morsi - Egypt's first democratically elected president - is to due to stand trial on 16 February for collaborating with Hamas, Hezbollah and other organisations to commit terrorist acts in Egypt.
