12 February 2018 :
Egypt’s high military appeals court upheld death sentences handed to two defendants over the August 2013 murder of two police personnel in North Sinai.
A first-degree military court originally sentenced the pair to death in 2015 for their involvement in the militant attack on Al-Gora checkpoint in the North Sinai city of Al-Arish, and for possessing illegal firearms.
The attack resulted in the deaths of two police conscripts and injured another officer.
The ruling cannot be appealed.
