Muslim Brotherhood call Egypt sentencing 'inhumane'

Muslim Brotherhood called the sentencing to death of 529 of its supporters by an Egyptian court "inhumane and a clear violation of all norms of humane and legal justice."

A statement from the religious and political party's London office described the sentencing as "shocking and unprecedented".

"The verdict is yet another clear indication that the corrupt judiciary is being utilized by the coup commanders to suppress the Egyptian revolution and install a brutal regime which surpassed decades long of oppression and tyranny in Egypt's history," Muslim Brotherhood said.

The group stressed it will appeal the court ruling "and defend basic rights of Egyptians".
