• Egypt court jails ousted president Morsi for 20 years


    CAIRO: An Egyptian court on Tuesday sentenced ousted president Mohamed Morsi and 12 other defendants to 20 years in jail for involvement in the arrests and torture of protesters during his rule.

    But the court acquitted Morsi — Egypt’s first freely elected president — of murder charges that could have seen him sentenced to death over the killings of a journalist and two protesters during clashes outside a presidential palace in 2012.
