A Sharqiya criminal court sentenced 24 people to life in prison on Saturday for inciting violence and joining the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group in a trial that dates back to 2014, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported.

The court also sentenced three defendants to three years in prison.

The 27 suspects were arrested in Zagzig, Sharqiya governorate for organising a march supporting the Muslim Brotherhood group and inciting violence in the Nile Delta city.

The Egyptian government designated the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group in December 2013.
