Egypt probes Morsi for giving ‘security papers’ to Qatar

Egypt has opened an investigation into deposed Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi for delivering “documents relevant to national security” to Qatar, state news agency MENA reports.

Morsi is already facing the death penalty in several trials and his supporters have been the target of a bloody crackdown by the authorities that has left more than 1,400 dead since he was removed in July 2013.
