Egyptian Courts Convict 113 Over Pro-Mursi Protests

By DMO Affiliate
Egyptian courts convicted 113 Muslim Brotherhood supporters on Thursday on charges including attacking police, rioting and weapons possession in three separate cases brought after protests against the army-backed government. Thursday's rulings included three-year prison terms for 63 people in a single case, one of the biggest mass sentencings to date. The judge fined each of them 50,000 Egyptian pounds ($7,200). The other two cases involved the remaining Brotherhood supporters receiving two and a half to three year prison terms for similar charges including belonging to an armed terrorist group. The Egyptian government accuses the Brotherhood of turning to violence and declared it a terrorist group on December 25. However, the group says it is committed to peaceful protest.
