30 Sentenced To Death In Egypt


A court in Egypt has recommended the death penalty for 30 people, convicted for their involvement in a car bombing.

The car bombing killed Egypts top prosecutor Hisham Barakat. Hisham Barakat was assasinated in a car bomb attack in June 2015.

Mr Barakat had sent thousands of Islamists to trial since the overthrow of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood backed government in 2013.

Egypt has blamed Hamas militants for Mr Barakat’s killing, with the group denying the claims.

Last year several men were shown on video confessing to the crime but the men later said they were tortured to talk, during their trail in court.

The courts recommendation of a death penalty will now be sent to Egypt’s highest religious authority, the grand mufti.
