An Egyptian misdemeanour court has sentenced two women to three years in prison and one man to one year over negligence that led to the killing of three children in Giza last July.

On 10 July, the bodies of the three children were found in Talbiya Giza, almost decomposed and wrapped in two plastic bags and a carpet and dumped on a roadside. The children, aged two, four and five, had died in an apartment fire a few days earlier when the mother and her flatmate were out.

The defendants were charged by the prosecution with negligence leading to the children's deaths, as well as failing to notify authorities and discarding the bodies without burial.

The husband of the flatmate was sentenced to one year in prison.

The verdict is subject to appeal.
