A Suez court sentenced on Monday 34 alleged Muslim Brotherhood members to three years in prison on a number of charges dating back to 2013, including one murder and carrying weapons, state news agency MENA reported. 

Those convicted were also charged with harming public safety, targeting security forces, damaging public property, and violating curfew.

Three people were found innocent in the case.

All sentences can still be appealed.

The events date back to protests in Suez on 8 November 2013 following the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July.

Clashes between Morsi supporters and locals on Geish street in Suez resulted in the death of one man, who was found with birdshot wounds in his neck. Three others were injured.
