BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – A Cairo court issued verdicts for more than 700 people on Saturday over a Muslim Brotherhood sit-in supporting ousted president Mohammed Morsi in 2013.

Seventy-five people were sentenced to death and forty-seven others were given life imprisonment.

The Cairo Criminal Court also handed out a ten-year sentence to Morsi’s son Osama.

The case centres around a pro-Morsi protest in August 2013. As Egyptian security forces moved to break up a six-week sit-in around Rabaa Al Adawiya Mosque in Greater Cairo, around 800 people were killed and thousands more injured.

The demonstration took place a month after the democratically-elected former president was ousted by the then military chief and current President, Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.

Seems new anti-IED systems work great… Many may get the same kind of “surprise” in the future.
