CAIRO: A total of 58 members of the Muslim Brotherhood were sentenced Sunday to between 3 and 25 years in prison for killing a sales representative in Mansoura, the Delta, in August 2013, Youm7 reported.

Seven defendants were sentenced to life in prison, three were sentenced to 10 years, and 21 were sentenced to three years for the deliberate murder of Sherif al-Qammash, 40, after the Rabaa al-Adaweya sit-in was dispersed Aug. 14, 2013.

They were also charged with using force, violence, illegal assembly and clashing with locals around Mansoura University Stadium in Dakahlia governorate.

The victims was killed by gunshot to the head while Brotherhood protesters “indiscriminately shot at locals,” according to the prosecution. The sentence can be appealed.

Massive protests took to streets in many governorates after the sit-in was dispersed in Cairo, where hundreds were killed at the hands of the police. The protesters attacked police stations in other places, killing a number of officers, and also assaulted anti-Brotherhood citizens and their properties.
