Egypt's Mursi accuses army of role in deaths during 2011 protest

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's ousted Islamist president Mohamed Mursi accused the country's army in one of his trials on Sunday of killing protestor during the 2011 uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak.

Mursi, a Muslim Brotherhood leader who became president in June 2012, alleged in a statement from his metal court cage that the man who overthrew him one year later, then army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, played a role in the violence.
