An Alexandria military court sentenced on Wednesday seven supporters of former president Mohamed Morsi to death for their role in a deadly bombing last April that killed three military academy students in Kafr El-Sheikh city in the northern Nile Delta. 

The court also sentenced five defendants to life in prison, another two to five years in prison, while the remaining two defendants were sentenced to three years in prison.

A total of 16 defendants were tried in the bomb attack case, including six in absentia.

The defendants still have the right to appeal the court's sentence. 

In February, the court issued a preliminary death sentence for the seven supporters, referring the sentences to the Grand Mufti for review, a necessary procedure under Egyptian law.

The religious opinion of the Mufti is non-binding.

The deadly bombing, which also injured six people, took place in April 2015 outside Kafr El-Sheikh Stadium, as the students were waiting for a bus to transport them to the military academy in Cairo. 

In 2014, the then-interim President Adly Mansour signed ammendments to the military criminal court, granting defendants for the first time the right to appeal military court sentences.
