Egypt’s Former Elected President Morsi Sentenced to Death – Al Jazeera English
An Egypt court has sentenced former President Mohamed Morsi to death for a mass prison break in 2011, prompting immediate condemnations from Amnesty International and the Turkish president.
The court ruled on Saturday that the sentencing of Morsi and 105 others will be referred to the grand mufti, the highest religious authority in Egypt, for confirmation.
Many of those sentenced were tried in absentia.
The court will pronounce its final decision on June 2.
