Brotherhood Leader's 2nd Death Sentence Commuted


Egypt's Grand Mufti has commuted the death sentence handed to the Muslim Brotherhood's leader, Mohamed Badie, to a life sentence, reported Al Jazeera Saturday evening. A previously issued death sentence against Badie still stands.

The death sentences for five others were also reduced to life on Saturday by Shawki Allam, the country's highest religious authority. Six others were sentenced to death in absentia.
