MB Leader, 16 Others Given Life in Prison

Egypt’s state-run news agency on Saturday said Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie and 16 others have been sentenced to life in prison on charges related to the killing of five people in an attack on a police station in 2013.
The agency said Badie and senior Brotherhood members Mohammed el-Beltagy and Safwat Hegazy were accused of inciting other Brotherhood members to attack the police station in the Mediterranean city of Port Said, and kill its officers and soldiers, AP reported.
The court sentenced 76 others in absentia to the same punishment. Badie has faced numerous trials and has accumulated two death sentences and five sentences to life in prison in separate cases, which still may be appealed. The attack was part of a wave of violence that swept across Egypt after the army, led by then army chief turned-President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, removed the country’s first freely-elected president Mohamed Morsi from power in July 2013, following protests against his rule.
Charges ranged from murder and inciting violence to stealing weapons and destruction of public and private property.
