An Egyptian court has sentenced 126 alleged supporters of the ousted president to 10 years in jail for assaulting police, damaging public property and inciting violence last summer.
Sunday's verdict by the court in the Nile Delta city of Kafr el-Sheikh is the latest in a series over recent months that saw hundreds of Morsi supporters sentenced to death or imprisoned. In some cases, the verdicts were announced after no more than two hearings.
The military ousted the Islamist Mohammed Morsi last July after days of mass demonstrations by protesters demanding that he step down.
Prosecutors have said the defendants committed the crimes on Aug. 16, two days after security forces moved to end two sit-in protests by Morsi supporters in Cairo, killing hundreds.
