Court of Cassation overturns Morsi, Badie death sentences

The Court of Cassation has overturned a death sentence against former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi and former Ikhwan supreme guide Mohamed Badie, and ordered a retrial for both, reported Reuters. The death sentence was issued in June 2015 in relation to the mass jailbreak during the 2011 revolution. Morsi has separately been sentenced to life in prison for terrorism offences, and still faces trial on other charges, reports BBC. Four other Ikhwan leaders had their death sentences annulled, while 21 life sentences for other members were also overturned.
