16 April 2018 :
Egypt's highest appeals court upheld death sentences for four people over forming a "terrorist cell" to plot attacks on security forces and other institutions.
The court of cassation also rejected an appeal by 14 other defendants against sentences of 15 years imprisonment in February over similar charges including joining an outlawed group, a reference to the Muslim Brotherhood. The verdict is final.
Six defendants in the case were sentenced to life imprisonment in absentia. They remain at large and will be re-tried once they are apprehended.
