Egyptian court sentences Mohammed Badie, Muslim Brotherhood leader, and 13 other senior members to death

SHAFAQNA – According to Reuters reported that ”  An Egyptian court sentenced Mohamed Badie, leader of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, and 13 other senior members of the group to death for inciting chaos and violence, and gave a life term to a U.S.-Egyptian citizen for ties to the Brotherhood. The men were among thousands of people detained after freely elected Islamist president Mohamed Mursi was toppled in 2013 by the military under Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is now president.” The Independent Newspaper reported that ” The case is rooted in violence that rocked Egypt after the military-led coup against Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, whose supporters set up protest encampments in Cairo. Security forces ended the sit-ins, with violence, resulting in the death of hundreds of people. In retaliation, many police stations and churches came under attack by alleged Morsi supporters.”
