Egypt: Death Penalty for Terrorists


The Egyptian Courts today (Monday) sentenced to death 14 men convicted of terrorist attacks against police and soldiers when Egyptian security forces uncovered a terrorist cell.

The Egyptian government, established through a military coup in July of 2013, continues to deal with opposition forces with an iron hand, the Muslim Brotherhood being the top terrorist organization on their list and who have had many of their leaders and members arrested.

14 of the convicted men were sentenced to death, and four more to life imprisonment in the attack on the El Arish police station, which resulted in the deaths of many police officers and soldiers.
