Egypt military court sentences 14 people to death for 2015 Alexandria deadly bombing

Ahram Online , Sunday 17 Dec 2017

An Egypt military court sentenced on Sunday 14 defendants to death after they were convicted of committing a terror attack in Alexandria in 2015.

In March 2015, a small bomb exploded near Carrefour hypermarket in the El-Seyouf area of Alexandria, killing a navy corporal and injuring five other people.

The court also gave life sentences to 24 other defendants, as well as 15-year sentences for five defendants in the same case.

The decisions can be appealed.

The defendants faced charges of murder, attempted murder, and joining an outlawed group that aims to overthrow the government and obstruct state institutions from carrying out their duties.

They were also charged with attacking personal freedoms and the rights of citizens, and harming unity and social peace.
