A Cairo criminal court sentenced on Tuesday six people to life in prison – 25 years – for joining an illegal organisation, the attempted murder of security personnel and establishing a terrorist cell in the case known in the media as the "second Nasr City terrorist cell."

The court also sentenced four others from four to 15 years in prison, and two defendants to five years in the same case.

The verdict can still be appealed.

The court also gave the defendants five years of probation and barred them from managing their assets.

The defendants were referred to trial in November 2017 over illegal possession of weapons, obstructing the duties of state institutions, endangering citizens, attempted murder of security personnel and joining an illegal group.
