CAIRO, July 7 (UPI) -- More than 150 Egyptians were killed during President Mohamed Morsi's rule, the Arab Network for Human Rights Information said.

During the first five months of his rule, four people were killed, the ANHRI said.

After Morsi declared a constitutional declaration on Nov. 21 and anger rose, 150 supporters and opponents of Morsi were killed in the seven months that followed.

Most of those victims were opponents of Morsi, al-Masry al-Youm reported.

The ANHRI also accused Morsi of spreading false information and inciting violence during protests at the presidential palace in December 2012.

He then said that some of the people arrested had been hired to kill protesters, but the attorney general's investigation later disproved that claim.

ANHRI said Morsi should face the same charged levied against former President Hosni Mubarak, who is accused of killing 841 Egyptians during the revolution.
