Cairo criminal court sentenced on Sunday six prison inmates to seven years in prison for the murder Frenchman Eric Lang while he was detained at a police station in 2013.

Lang was arrested in September 2013 for violating a curfew that had been imposed a month earlier and was taken to downtown Cairo’s Qasr El-Nile police station.

He was placed in the station’s holding cells after his arrest. It was in the same cells that Lang was later beaten to death.

The 49-year old French national had lived in Egypt for several years and was working as a French teacher in Cairo.

The verdict against the six convicts can still be appealed.
