Egypt jails key figures of 2011 uprising

Published: 12.22.13, 21:54 / Israel News

Three leading figures of Egypt's 2011 uprising were jailed for three years each on Sunday for their role in recent protests, as the army-backed authorities intensified a crackdown on dissent.

 

Ahmed Maher, Ahmed Douma and Mohamed Adel are symbols of the protest movement that ignited the revolt that toppled President Hosni Mubarak in 2011. Their sentences include prison labour and fines of 50,000 Egyptian pounds ($7,200) each. As the verdict was read, the three chanted "Down, down with military rule!" from the cage where defendants stand in Egyptian courts. (AP)
