An Egyptian court has sentenced Muhammad Badie, the leader of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, and 13 other senior members of the group to death for inciting chaos and violence.
A judge made the announcement during a televised court session on April 11. The court also sentenced U.S-Egyptian citizen Muhammad Soltan to life in jail for supporting the group and transmitting false news.
The sentences can be appealed before Egypt's highest civilian court in a process that could take years to reach a final verdict.
The men were among thousands detained after the ousting of Islamist President Muhammad Morsi in 2013.
President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who as army chief toppled Morsi following mass street protests, describes the Brotherhood as a major security threat.
The Brotherhood says it is committed to peaceful activism and has nothing to do with recent Islamist militant violence in the country.
