Cairo, Feb 11 : An Egyptian appeals court on Wednesday overturned death sentences of 33 alleged Islamist supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi and ordered a retrial, state media and their lawyer said.
A lower court in June condemned to death 183 Islamists, including the 33, for the alleged murder of two policemen and attempted murder of five others in  Minya on August 14, 2013.
The defendants were found guilty of committing the murders on the same day that police killed hundreds of Morsi backers in Cairo clashes.    ?AFP
