2 protesters sentenced to life for 2013 Downtown Cairo clashes

Cairo Criminal Court sentenced Wednesday two people to life in prison and another person to three years in a jail in the case of the Mohamed Mahmoud Street clashes with police in November 2013.

The court sentenced another defendant to six months in jail and acquitted 26 other defendants of several charges, including inciting riots and resisting security forces.

The prosecution had accused the defendants of charges including attempted murder and inciting unrest.

At least one protester was killed and 50 others injured during clashes between protesters and security forces in November 2013 in Mohamed Mahmoud Street and Tahrir Square.

The 2013 protests were to mark the anniversary of the five-day clashes that took place in Mohamed Mahmoud Street in November 2011 between pro-revolution protesters and the police. The clashes claimed the lives of over 40 protesters.
