Egypt charged ousted President Mohammad Morsi and several other people on Saturday with endangering national security by leaking state secrets and sensitive documents to Qatar, dealing a further blow to his outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.Relations between Qatar and Egypt have been icy since July 2013, when then-Egyptian army chief Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi toppled Morsi after mass unrest against his rule. Qatar had supported Morsi, who is already in jail along with thousands of Brotherhood members, many of whom have been sentenced to death on separate charges. Security sources had said last month that Egypt was investigating Morsi in connection with documents they said were leaked to Qatar and its satellite news channel Al Jazeera.
