Islam : Egypt Court Sentenced to 185 Death

CAIRO — An Egyptian criminal court sentenced 185 people to death Tuesday for attacking a police station near Cairo in 2013, which resulted in the deaths of 12 officers. The attack happened on the same day that security forces massacred hundreds of protesters who supported Islamic President Mohammed Morsi, who was ousted from power last year.
The mass death sentence handed down by the judge is a preliminary sentence and can be appealed. The move has been roundly condemned by international human rights groups like Human Rights Watch.
