Court upholds life sentences for Ikhwan leaders

This morning in the pages of the foreign press: The Court of Cassation has upheld the life sentences handed down to 10 Muslim Brotherhood leaders, including the outlawed group’s head Mohamed Badie, on charges of killing policemen and organizing jail breaks during the 2011 uprising, state-owned MENA news agency reported yesterday. This comes a couple of weeks after the court reduced the death penalty to life imprisonment for 31 Ikhwan leaders including Badie for their involvement in the 2013 Rabaa sit-in, while upholding death penalties for 12 Ikhwan members including Mohamed Beltagy and Safwat Hegazy. The Associated Press noted the story.
