MINYA, Egypt: An Egyptian court confirmed on Saturday death sentences for more than 180 Islamists, including Muslim Brotherhood chief Mohamed Badie, after a mass trial that sparked an international outcry.

The court’s decision came two months after it referred the case against the Brotherhood’s “general guide”, Mohamed Badie, and hundreds of others to the state’s highest religious authority, the grand mufti, the first step towards imposing a death sentence.
