CAIRO: Three defendants were sentenced to life in prison Thursday for raiding Warraq police station in Giza in 2013, one of whom was tried in absentia, Youm7 reported.
A low-ranking policeman was killed in the raid, and the defendants were charged with disrupting state institution and founding a “terrorist group.”
A number of police stations were stormed Aug. 14, 2013 after the violent dispersal of Rabaa al-Adaweya sit-in, which was demanding the reinstatement of President Mohamed Morsi.
Several policemen were killed in the attacks, police stations were torched and weapons were stolen in different governorates simultaneously as hundreds of Islamist protesters were getting killed in the Cairo-based sit-in.
