Egypt Sentences 75 To Death For Protests

This picture shows the courtroom and soundproof glass dock (bottom) during the trial of 700 defendants including Egyptian photojournalist Mahmoud Abu Zeid, widely known as Shawkan, in the capital Cairo, on September 8, 2018. An Egyptian court on September 8 handed a five-year jail sentence to prominent photojournalist Zeid, known as Shawkan, who earlier this year received UNESCO's World Freedom Prize. Shawkan was one of more than 700 defendants on trial in the same case, most of them facing charges of killing police and vandalising property during the clashes. The same court that jailed him also confirmed on Saturday death sentences initially issued in July against 75 defendants, including leaders of Morsi's outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. / AFP PHOTO / Mohamed el-Shahed
