Ousted president Mohamed Morsi's detention has been extended by order of the prosecutor general for another 15 days pending investigations into allegations that he smuggled top secret documents to Qatar, reported MENA news agency late Wednesday.

Morsi is already accused of smuggling top secret documents to Qatar during his presidency through Al-Jazeera TV channel via a number of his staff in the presidency, including his own secretary, Amin El-Serafi.  

According to the state-owned MENA news agency, investigators of the General Prosecution moved to Tora Prison Wednesday to question the ousted Islamist president and to confront him with allegations that he smuggled top secret documents to Qatar. 

Morsi, who was removed from power by the army in July 2013 amid nationwide protests against his year-long rule, also faces a number of other charges in separate trials, including espionage and inciting the murder and torture of opposition protesters outside the presidential palace in December 2012.
