Four of them have been in custody while the other 41 were sentenced in absentia, according to official MENA news agency.
The case dates back to 2012 when a massive fight erupted between two big families in which knives, guns and Molotov cocktails were used, leaving three dead.
The verdict is not final and still appealable.
