Ousted Egyptian President Morsi Sentenced To Death 

A Cairo court Saturday sentenced former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi to death after he was convicted for a 2011 jailbreak.

Sentenced with him were 100 other defendants including  Muslim Brotherhood leader, Mohamed Badie, and a former parliament speaker, Mohamed Saad El-Katatny.

The sentences were referred to the Grand Mufti for confirmation on June 1 before execution. Morsi and his co-defendants were accused of collaborating with the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas and the Lebanese Shia group Hizballah in a mass jailbreak during the riots which overthrew President Hosni Mubarak.
