Morsi Probed For 'Insulting Judiciary'

CAIRO, July 4 (Reuters) - Egyptian judicial authorities opened an investigation on Thursday into accusations that deposed President Mohammed Morsi and 15 other Islamists had insulted the judiciary, investigating judge Tharwat Hammad said, imposing a travel ban on all of them.

It was second formal order banning Morsi from leaving the country since the military removed the Muslim Brotherhood politician from power on Wednesday.
