CAIRO, October 21. /TASS/. A military court in Egypt sentenced on Tuesday seven people to death and two more to life in prison after finding them guilty on terrorism charges, local Al Ahram daily reported.
All those sentenced were members of notorious Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis group, which was active on the Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula and listed by the United States as a terrorist group. Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis militants carried out attacks on Egyptian military forces, trained new militants, kept explosives and killed two Egyptian army officers.
“The verdict comes after the death sentences originally handed out in August were referred to Egypt's grand mufti for approval, a necessary procedure in Egyptian law,” Al Ahram reported.
All sentenced were captured in March during a special military operation in the village of Arab Sharkas, in the governorate of Qaliubiya, north of Cairo. Six more militants were killed in the course of the operation.
