119 Muslim Brotherhood Members Sentenced in Egypt


A Cairo court sentenced 119 members of the Muslim Brotherhood to three years in prison on Wednesday. They were accused of supporting the ousted president Mohamed Morsi. The condemned were accused of conspiring against the government in violent protests to overthrow the new government in the country.

The Muslim Brotherhood began in Egypt in 1928 and is seen as a forerunner to such terrorist organizations as Hamas.
