An Egyptian military court sentenced on Tuesday Egyptian journalist and researcher Ismail Alexandrani to ten years in prison for spreading false news and joining a banned group.

Alexandrani, a prominent journalist and an expert on militant groups in the North Sinai, was arrested after arriving at Hurghada airport from Germany in December 2015.

He was referred to a military trial for a number of charges including spreading false news and joining a banned group, in reference to the Muslim Brotherhood.

This is a first degree military court ruling that can be appealed within 60 days of its ratification.
