FILE – This Monday, Nov. 4, 2013 file image made from video provided by Egypt’s Interior Ministry shows ousted President Mohammed Morsi, right, speaking from the defendant’s cage as he stands with co-defendants in a makeshift courtroom during a trial hearing in Cairo, Egypt. Egypt’s crackdown on Islamists has jailed 16,000 people over the past eight months in the country’s biggest round-up in nearly two decades, according to previously unreleased figures from security officials. Rights activists say reports of abuses in prisons are mounting, with prisoners describing systematic beatings and miserable conditions for dozens packed into tiny cells.
