` Egyptian Court Sentences 155 Muslim Brotherhood Supporters to Jail Giving 54 Life Sentences ‘

#AceWorldNews – CAIRO – May 21 – An Egyptian court sentenced 155 Muslim Brotherhood supporters to jail terms on Wednesday and gave 54 of them life sentences, Reuters reported, citing judicial sources.

The case is related to violence in the Nile Delta province of Mansour last August after the army’s ouster of President Mohamed Morsi.

Other defendants were sentenced to between three to 10 years in jail as the charges include instigating violence and chaos and membership in a banned group.

Police dispersed demonstrators outside the courthouse who were protesting the verdict.
