An Egyptian court confirmed Tuesday the death sentences handed to 25 people over a 2014 tribal feud between two families that resulted in the deaths of at least 28 people in Aswan.

The court also sentenced 138 others to between three years and life in jail.

Last month, defendants received a preliminary death sentence pending the Mufti's non-binding opinion.

The verdicts can still be appealed.

The deadly events took place in April 2014 between Bani Helal, an Arab tribe, and Nubian Daboudiya, reportedly over a girl's harrassment and offensive graffiti.

Authorities intervened and a truce was agreed upon, which ended days of violence.
