CAIRO, Feb. 1 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's ousted president Mohamed Morsi arrived in Cairo for a trial on charges of inciting violence and killing protesters outside the presidential palace in late 2012, official news agency MENA reported on Saturday.

MENA said Morsi was flown in by helicopter from Borg al-Arab prison in the coastal city of Alexandria, where some 14 others belonging to his Muslim Brotherhood group are detained.

The hearing will be held at the Police Academy complex in eastern Cairo, where a heavy security presence stands guard.

Saturday's trial marks the third time that Morsi has appeared in public since the army removed him from power and put him into custody in early July.

The trial is the fourth announced for the former Islamist leader, as he faces additional charges related to jailbreak and espionage along with some Brotherhood top leaders as well as insulting the judiciary.
