An Egyptian court sentences to death 10 members of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group found guilty of terror-related charges, a judicial source says.

The verdict will now be referred to the Grand Mufti, Egypt’s top theological authority — a formality in death penalty cases — before the court meets on June 19 to confirm the sentences.
