An Egyptian court has sentenced six people to death for allegedly passing sensitive documents related to national security to Qatar and Doha-based TV Networks during the rule of former president Mohamed Morsi, with two of the defendants belonging to Al Jezeera News Agency.


All of yesterday’s verdicts can be appealed against, and Amnesty International are already calling for the death penalty to be thrown out, Al Jazeera commenting on the sentences, “They are illogical convictions and legally baseless. Al-Jazeera strongly denounces targeting its journalists and stands by the other journalists who have also been sentenced”.
