12 Morsi supporters get death sentence
(06-18 20:02)

An Egyptian court sentenced 12 supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi to death on charges connected to the fatal shooting of a police general last year.
The 12 were among 23 defendants charged with murder or attempted murder over the shooting during a police raid on an Islamist stronghold in the capital on September 19 that came amid the bloody crackdown that followed the army's overthrow of Morsi in July.
The accused were also charged with ''membership of a jihadist organization.'' The other 11 remain on the run.--AFP
