Egypt: 7 Islamists get life in prison for violence

Published: 05.11.14, 20:34 / Israel News

An Egyptian judge sentenced seven alleged Muslim Brotherhood members to life in prison for blocking a highway and damaging a security post outside of Cairo last summer after security forces violently broke up sit-ins supporting the ousted Islamist president, the country's top prosecutor said Sunday.


The sentence issued by the criminal court of the Nile Delta city of Benha was described in a statement from the chief prosecutor office as a "deterrent." The verdicts are part of a government campaign to crackdown on protests following the military ouster of Morsi in July in the wake of massive rallies against him. (AP)
