Egypt Court Sentences 22 to Death Over 2013 Attack on Police

An Egyptian criminal court on Monday sentenced 22 people to death after convicting them of storming a police station outside Cairo and killing an officer on July 3, 2013 -- the day the military overthrew an elected but divisive Islamist president. The ruling was the latest action against alleged supporters of the ousted Mohammed Morsi, whose Muslim Brotherhood group has faced a violent government crackdown after his one-year rule ended and it was banned and declared a terrorist organization. Morsi himself faces a verdict on Tuesday over accusations he was responsible for the killing of protesters while president. The ruling will be the first in several ongoing trials against him.
