Mohamed Morsi, the former president of Egypt, has been sentenced to death alongside over 100 other Muslim Brotherhood members. The nation’s first freely elected president was sentenced in connection with a massive prison break in 2011 during the uprising that saw him take power.
Morsi was overthrown by the military in July 2013 in a coup. Shortly after the sentencing, gunmen shot and killed three judges in the northern Sanai peninsula. Police are still unsure as to whether or not the shooting was a retaliation for Morsi’s sentence.
