Egypt Court Refers 10 Sentences to Mufti in ‘Helwan Brigades’ Case

An Egyptian court has sentenced to death 10 members of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood for planning attacks on the police, the state-news agency MENA said on Sunday.

Egypt’s top religious authority, the Grand Mufti, has to ratify the sentences, it said.

The 10 who were sentenced to death had formed a group called “Helwan Brigades”, MENA said, in reference to a city south of Cairo.

They were part of a broader plot to attack police targets in the Cairo area with the aim to topple the regime, it added.
