Egypt's Morsi jailed for 20 years over protester deaths

21 Apr 2015 06:32:18

An Egyptian court Tuesday sentenced ex-president Mohamed Morsi to 20 years over abuses of protesters but acquitted him of charges that would have seen the Islamist leader face the death penalty. In the first verdict in a series of trials he is facing, the Cairo court convicted Morsi of ordering the arrest and torture of protesters involved in clashes in 2012 when he was president. Egypt's first freely elected leader, Morsi came to power following the 2011 ouster of longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak in a popular uprising. Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood has been blacklisted and targeted in a government crackdown that has seen hundreds killed and thousands thrown in jail.
