Two sons of Gamal Saber, coordinator of a group that supports former Salafist presidential candidate Hazem Abu-Ismail, were sentenced on Sunday over a murder in Cairo's Shubra district in 2013.

Ahmed Gamal Saber was handed 15 years while his brother Abdel-Rahman Gamal Saber was given seven years, both at a maximum security prison.

Violence erupted in Cairo's working-class Shubra district in March 2013 after Saad Dorra, 15, was killed during a football match at a local high school, allegedly at the hands of Ahmed Gamal Saber.  

Three people were killed and 26 injured in the Shubra clashes, in which relatives of the slain boy fought with relatives and associates of Saber with shotguns loaded with birdshot and Molotov cocktails.
