Egypt courts convict 170 in mass trials

Published: 05.18.14, 19:17 / Israel News

A pair of Egyptian courts on Sunday convicted 170 suspected supporters of toppled President Mohammed Morsi on charges over violent attacks last year, the country's latest mass trials ahead of this month's presidential elections.

 

The convictions in the courts in Cairo and in the Nile Delta city of Kafr el-Sheikh are the latest in a series over recent months that saw hundreds of people prosecutors identified as Morsi supporters sentenced to death or imprisonment.

 

In some cases, the verdicts came after no more than two hearings. (AP)
