Egyptian Court Sentences Four to Death for Killing Policemen

An Egyptian court has sentenced four terrorists to death over killing policemen.

Twenty-Six other terrorists got varied verdicts, from a life sentence which is 25 years in Egypt, to seven years in prison, over charges of joining terrorist groups, killing and attempted murder of several policemen, possession of weapons, and sabotaging state properties.

The murder case dates back to 2014 when 30 terrorists from a cell were arrested with documents and maps in their possession for destroying police cars and planting bombs near security checkpoints.

Egypt witnessed a wave of anti-security attacks that caused the death and injury of hundreds of policemen and soldiers after the army removed the Islamist president Mohamed Morsi from power in 2013.
