CAIRO - An Egyptian court has sentenced 11 alleged supporters of the country's ousted Islamist president to up to 88 years in prison on charges that include violating a protest law and assaulting police.


Five of those sentenced Saturday by a court in the southern city of Minya were tried in absentia. The case was related to demonstrations in the town of Samallout.


It is one of several cases against members of the Muslim Brotherhood group and supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi. (AP)
