Morsi Sentenced to Death

An Egyptian court sentenced Egypt's ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi and over 100 others to death Saturday over a mass prison break during the 2011 uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak and later brought Islamists to power for the first time in Egypt.
Also sentenced to death with Morsi in the prison break case were 105 defendants, most of them were tried and convicted in absentia. They include some 70 Palestinians. Those tried in absentia in Egypt receive automatic retrials once detained, France24 reported.
Prosecutors have alleged in the case that members of the Palestinian Hamas group entered Egypt during the 18-day uprising through tunnels running under Gaza's border with Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.
