Egyptian courts have sentenced at least 528 members and supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization to death. Charges stem from their part in the violent riots that took place in the south of the country in the city of Minya this past August. In those riots one police officer was killed. This is the largest death sentence handed down in Egyptian history according to sources there. Not all defendants are in custody and they can appeal their sentence sources say.
