Egypt Executes 9 'Brotherhood' Members in Barakat's Murder

 

Asharq Al-Awsat

 

Nine Muslim Brotherhood members have been executed after being convicted of involvement in the 2015 assassination of the country's top prosecutor, Egyptian security officials said Wednesday.
 
The nine were found guilty of taking part in the murder of Hisham Barakat in a car bomb attack on his convoy in the capital, Cairo.
 
They were among a group of 28 who were sentenced to death in the case in 2017.
 
Egypt's highest appeals court upheld the death sentences against the nine suspects in November. It commuted six other death sentences to life in prison.
