An Egyptian court today in Cairo, sentenced to death 529 supporters of toppled president Mohammed Morsi after they were found guilty of charges ranging from rioting, attacking people and police facilities and even killing a police officer in Minya, a part of the country.
The case which is said to be the biggest trial in the modern history of Egypt paraded about 1,200 defendants from Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood group, which has been declared as a terrorist organisation by the new military backed government.

Morsi, who is Egypt’s first democratically elected president, was toppled by the army in July, 2013 after citizens protested against his one-year rule.
Hundreds of his supporters were killed in security crackdowns that followed his overthrow and thousands were detained, most of them who were sentenced to death today.  The judge has however said the defendants can appeal their sentences.

A relative of a supporter of Mohamed Morsi cries outside the courthouse today in the central Egyptian city of Minya, after the court ordered the execution of 529 Morsi supporters (AFP). More relatives crying outside the court house after the death sentence

Another relative of a supporter of ousted Islamist president Morsi is supported as he faints outside the courthouse after the judgement

After 100 year of existence there is no progress in any way.No and no to election. Nigeria has expired and it is crippled for ever and nothing or any one can revive it be we are not one.Division Is the answer to that place called nigeria since we can't be one if not there will and will always be various dire situation and consequence all times like bomb exploding if you know what I mean. The leaders and every one including the pastors knows what is right( peaceful division,seperation, distingration)and doeth it not it is a sin. Is it not it? Now the president name is bad luck and gowon is hated for murdering millions of biafrans . the only good thing or gift they can give or do us is to divide that place called nigeria so we can all go and rule our selves in our own land the we want. Where there will not be pointing of fingers because we are one. I am igbo at first and biafran is my nation. Niggeria was created by man named Fredrick lugard and it has expired and at 100 years old there is no improvement and progress so let's seek our way out.lets break out we have the right. If we the youths can can say no we don't want to continue any more and don't vote our leaders will ..... And we will miss see each other and so after if you can travel to Ghana from niggeria we can still see each other.
