The trial of Egypt's deposed Islamist President Mohammad Morsi and 35 others on charges of espionage in collaboration with Palestinian Hamas movement will start on February 16, judicial sources said Tuesday.Morsi and others including former aides and leaders of his Muslim Brotherhood have been accused of launching a "terrorist" campaign inside Egypt in collaboration with the Islamist movement Hamas and jihadists, the sources said.Egyptian authorities had been probing Morsi's alleged links to Hamas during mass jailbreaks in the 2011 uprising, when he and other Islamist prisoners escaped.The Brotherhood is facing a relentless crackdown from Egypt's government, which has left more than 1,000 people, mostly supporters of Morsi, killed since July, and thousands more arrested.
