An Egyptian court has ruled that 75 people should be executed for their participation in a sit-in protest by Islamists in 2013, which was broken up by security forces, leaving at least 600 people dead.
The convicts, in a case involving 739 defendants, included senior leaders of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.
The charges ranged from murders to property damage. The Cairo court sentenced the Brotherhood's chief, Mohammed Badie and 46 others to life imprisonment.
The sit-in in a square in a suburb of Cairo was organized by supporters of Mohammed Morsi, an unconditional Brotherhood.
He became the first freely elected president in Egypt in 2012, but a year later he was expelled by the military, and was then led by President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.
One of Mr. Morsi's sons, Osama, was among the 22 defendants who received 10 years in prison. A total of 374 people were sentenced to 15 years and 215 to five years. Convictions may be subject to appeal.
