CAIRO — The politically charged trial of Egypt's Mohamed Morsy will begin on Nov. 4, almost four months to the day when the country's first democratically elected president was toppled by the military, authorities said on Wednesday.

The prosecution of Morsy on charges of inciting his followers to kill opponents of his rule takes the crackdown on his Muslim Brotherhood to a new level and is likely to fuel protests by his Islamist supporters, stoking the turmoil shaking Egypt.

Since his July 3 ouster, Morsy's backers have taken to the streets in rallies met by a fierce response by security forces that has left hundreds dead.
