Sentenced to death
CAIRO: Egypt’s state-run media said a court had sentenced 75 people to death, including top figures of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group, for their involvement in a 2013 sit-in.
Sentencing for more than 660 others was set for September 8, according to the state-run Al-Ahram news website.
The case involves 739 defendants, including the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide Mohammed Badie. Charges range from murder to damaging public property. The 2013 sit-in supported former Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.
