Mohamed Morsi Sentenced to Death

Mohamed Morsi Reacts Angrily to the Sentencing

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.
