Egypt- 185 Brotherhood backers sentenced to death

(MENAFN- The Peninsula) An Egyptian judge sentenced 185 Muslim Brotherhood supporters to death yesterday over an attack on a police station near Cairo last year in which 12 policemen were killed. The ruling is preliminary and subject to a lengthy appeals process. The attack on the Kerdasa police station took place on August 14, 2013, the day that Egyptian security forces cleared two Brotherhood protest camps in Cairo. Of those sentenced, 151 are in custody, with the others being tried in absentia, a judicial source said.
