CAIRO: An Egyptian court sentenced Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie to life in prison on Saturday, the court’s judge said, for inciting violence that erupted after the army deposed President Muhammad Mursi last year.

Badie, convicted along with about 36 other Brotherhood leaders and supporters for the same crime, is facing the death sentence in two separate cases.

All 37 defendants were also charged with blocking a major road north of Cairo during protests that followed Mursi’s ouster on July 3, 2013.

The court also upheld death sentences for 10 other Brotherhood leaders and supporters, of whom 8 were charged in absentia, on the same crimes.

Among the Brotherhood leaders sentenced to death in absentia is Abdul Rahman Al-Barr, a Muslim scholar and member of the Brotherhood’s Guidance Council.

Mohamed Abdel-Maqsoud, a Salafi preacher and a Brotherhood supporter, was also sentenced to death in absentia. He fled to Qatar after Mursi was toppled.

Senior Brotherhood member Mohamed El-Beltagy and some former ministers from Mursi’s administration were among those sentenced to life in prison.
