Muslim Brotherhood chief, 65 others get life for Egypt attack

The political fallout from the 2013 coup d’état in Egypt continues as different courts continue to mete out and overturn sentences. Most recently, 66 people connected to the the previous government and an attack on a police station, including Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie, have been re-sentenced to life in prison after previously being sentenced to death. 700 people have been tried several times, with nearly 288 acquitted and hundreds of others receiving death sentences or life in prison. Badie himself is on trial on 35 separate cases and has been sentenced to death several times, all of which have been overturned or, on five occasions, commuted to life sentences.
