Egypt sets Jan. 28 for ousted Morsi's 3rd trial

Egyptian judge "Medhat Idriss" said Cairo Appeals Court set the date Jan. 28 as opening day for the third trial of ousted Islamist President Mohammad Morsi , this one on charges of organizing prison breaks with the help of foreign militants.

The jailbreaks took place during the January 2011 uprising against Morsi's predecessor "Hosni Mubarak".

Morsi was jailed in Cairo at the time and escaped with more than 30 others, while more than 20,000 inmates escaped from prisons across Egypt, including Lebanese and Palestinian.

Morsi faces three trials on various charges, most of which carry the death penalty, from conspiring with foreign groups to inciting violence that led to the killings of protesters during his year in power.
