Egypt Sacks 41 Judges for Supporting the Brotherhood

Judicial sources said an Egyptian disciplinary court ordered 41 judges into compulsory retirement on Saturday for supporting the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, the latest move in a sweeping crackdown on political dissent. The government has implemented a harsh crackdown on Islamists as well as secular political opponents since then army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ousted Islamist President Mohamed Mursi in July 2013 following mass protests against his rule.
