Egypt sentences 683 to death

CAIRO - A judge in Egypt has sentenced 683 people - including Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie - to death in a mass trial, lawyers say.

Mr Badie and the 682 other supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi faced charges relating to an attack on a police station last year.

The same court also reversed 492 death sentences out of 529 it passed in March, commuting most of the death sentences to life in prison.
