The country's public prosecutor's office said on Saturday it would look at Morsi and eight other Islamist figures including Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie

Al-Jazeera reported that Morsi - Egypt's first freely elected leader - has been held at an undisclosed location since the army removed him from power on July 3, but has not yet been charged with any crime.
