CAIRO, April 21. /TASS/. Former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was sentenced on Tuesday for 20 years in prison for inciting the killing of protesters during the 2012 demonstrations outside the presidential palace in Cairo.
Morsi, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, came to power after the ouster of Hosni Mubarak who ruled Egypt in 1981-2011.
At least ten people were killed and 700 injured in clashes between Morsi's supporters and opposition demonstrators in December 2012, which were sparked by Morsi's decree expanding presidential powers.
Morsi was toppled in 2013 by a military coup led by Defence Minister, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi after mass protests against his rule.
Al-Sisi was elected Egypt's president in May 2014.
