CAIRO:  A total of 21 people, allegedly belong to the Muslim Brotherhood, were sentenced Sunday to two years in jail over illegal protesting on the 5th anniversary of the January 25 Revolution, Youm7 reported.

According to the investigations, the convicts were arrested in different places in Giza’s Mataria where protests staged. The security forces seized fireworks, anti-regime T-shirts, a pocketknife, and leaflets with Rabaa sign (a four-finger salute).

On Feb. 14, a total of 58 members of the Muslim Brotherhood were sentenced to between 3 and 25 years in prison for killing a sales representative in Mansoura, the Delta, in August 2013.

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.
