183 sentenced to death over 2013 police deaths in Egypt

An Egyptian court has sentenced 183 supporters of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood to death on charges of killing police officers, as authorities continued their crackdown on Islamists.

The men were convicted of playing a role in the killings of 16 policemen in the town of Kardasa in August 2013 during the upheaval that followed the army's ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.
