An Alexandrian criminal court on Saturday sentenced five people to life in prison for membership of the Muslim Brotherhood, and jailed 39 others for 15 years on the same charges.

The case dates back to 2018, where 44 people were arrested for vandalism and threatening people with accelerants in the El-Soyoof area of Alexandria.

The prosecution charged the defendants with joining a banned group, possessing flammable materials, setting cars ablaze, and assaulting citizens.

The defendants can still appeal the sentence.
