Egypt jails 63 Brotherhood supporters
Cairo, January 9, 2014
An Egyptian court sentenced 63 Muslim Brotherhood supporters to three years in jail each on Thursday on charges including rioting, thuggery and weapons possession during protests late last year in Cairo, a judicial source said.
It was the biggest number of Brotherhood supporters sentenced in one case since the army-backed authorities began cracking down on the movement after former President Mohamed Mursi was deposed in July. – Reuters
