12 March 2018 :
An Egyptian court sentenced 10 people to death after they were convicted of forming a terrorist group and planning attacks on police and security forces, judicial sources said.
The court in Cairo also sentenced five people to life in prison. State news agency MENA said the convicted men were supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood which was banned in Egypt after the 2013 overthrow of former President Mohamed Mursi.
March 10 rulings, which can be appealed, followed the referral of the death sentence to the Grand Mufti, Egypt's highest Sunni Muslim authority. Three of the sentences were passed in absentia.
