Egypt′s former President Morsi sentenced to 20 years

Former President Mohammed Morsi has been sentenced to 20 years in prison by an Egyptian court. He was accused of inciting violent protests that led to the deaths of three people in December 2012.

When Morsi was toppled in 2013, authorities initiated a bloody crackdown against the Brotherhood and their supporters, jailing thousands. Hundreds of people lost their lives in clashes with security forces. The Muslim Brotherhood itself was declared a terrorist organization by the government and outlawed.
