Egypt Judge Sentence 683 Muslin-Brotherhood To Death

A judge in Egypt has sentenced 683 people – including Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie – to death in a mass trial, lawyers say.

The defendants faced charges over an attack on a police station in Minya in 2013 in which a policeman was killed.

The judge also reversed 492 death sentences out of 529 passed in March, commuting most to life in prison.
