A criminal court in Upper Egypt’s Sohag has sentenced three young men to three years in prison and a fine of EGP 50,000 each for assaulting a 62-year-old man and pushing him into a canal.

In September, the public prosecution charged the three teenagers late last month with endangering the safety and security of a person with a disability, violating the family principles of society and violating the victim’s privacy.
