Tuesday 25 September 2018 02:02 PM


(Reuters) - Egypt’s highest court upheld the death sentences yesterday given to 20 people convicted over a deadly attack on a police station in 2013, judicial sources and the state-run MENA news agency said.

The Court of Cassation, whose rulings are final and cannot be appealed against, also confirmed the life sentences handed out to 80 defendants and 15-year prison terms for 34 others.

Earlier this month a court sentenced 75 people to death over the 2013 sit-in.
