Egypt refers ousted Morsi to military tribunal

Egypt’s military prosecution has referred ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi and more than 190 others to a military tribunal, known for swift and harsh verdicts. The official says that the new case against Morsi opens on Feb. 23 and is linked to the violence that swept the country after the deadly police disbursement of two large protest camps by pro-Morsi supporters that left hundreds dead in 2013. The crackdown sparked a wave of violence across the country.
