Egypt upholds death penalty for 12 Brotherhood members: judicial sources

An Egyptian court has upheld death sentences for 12 Muslim Brotherhood members, including two senior leaders of the outlawed Islamist movement, judicial sources say.

The court of cassation has also reduced sentences for 31 others to life in prison, the sources tell AFP, adding that the rulings are final and cannot be appealed.

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood held power briefly for a year before their military ouster in 2013.
