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.

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.
