Egypt court jails 102 Morsi supporters for 10 years

An Egyptian court sentenced 102 supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi to 10 years in prison Saturday over protest violence, state television reported.

The army-installed government has rounded up thousands of Morsi supporters and put them on mass trials since overthrowing him in July.

The Cairo court sentenced two others to seven years in prison.

Last week a court in the southern city of Minya sentenced 683 people, including the leader of Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood, to death in an initial ruling.
