CAIRO, May 30 : An Egyptian court on Monday sentenced the Muslim Brotherhood's leader and 35 other people to life in prison over violent clashes after the army overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, a judicial official said.
Mohamed Badie, the Brotherhood's supreme guide, has already been sentenced to death and prison terms in other trials.
The court also sentenced 48 defendants to jail terms ranging from three to 15 years, and acquitted 20 others.
The authorities have arrested thousands of Brotherhood leaders and members, including Morsi, since his ouster by the army in 2013. Hundreds have been sentenced to death, although many have appealed and won retrials.
On Monday, the court convicted Badie and the other defendants of involvement in clashes in the Suez Canal city of Ismailiya that killed three people.    ?AFP
