Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leader handed sixth life prison sentence: judicial sources

Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie and several other prominent Islamists were sentenced to life in prison for murder and inciting violence as part of an ongoing crackdown on the outlawed group.

Badie has faced numerous trials and has accumulated two death sentences and five sentences to life in prison in separate cases, which still may be appealed.

Saturday’s sentencing was related to an attack on a police station in the city of Port Said in 2013 in which five people were killed.
