75 Muslim Brotherhood members sentenced to death in EgyptAn Egyptian court today issued death sentences for 75 people, including prominent Muslim Brotherhood leaders, and jailed more than 600 others over a 2013 sit-in which ended with the killing of hundreds of protesters by security forces. The sentencing concluded the mass trial of over 700 people accused of offences including murder and inciting violence during the pro-Muslim Brotherhood protest at Rabaa Adawiya square in Cairo. The government says many protesters were armed and that eight members of the security forces were killed. It initially said more than 40 police had died. Rights groups say over 800 protesters died in the single most deadly incident during the unrest that followed Egypt’s 2011 popular uprising. Amnesty International condemned Saturday’s decision, calling the trial “disgraceful”. Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Mohamed Badie and dozens more were given life sentences, judicial sources said. Others received jail sentences ranging from five to 15 years. Cases were dropped against five people who had died while in prison.The post 75 Muslim Brotherhood members sentenced to death in Egypt appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
