183 Muslim Brotherhood members sentenced to death


Cairo: An Egyptian court on Monday upheld the death sentences of 183 supporters of Muslim Brotherhood in the latest round of Mass sentencing since former President Mohammed Morsi was ousted in 2013.

The accused were initially convicted in December for attacking a police station in a village near Cairo killing 15 policemen including the police chief.

The incident occurred a month after the ouster of Morsi which was followed by months of civil unrest.
