Beltagy gets year in prison for insulting prosecutor

The Cairo Criminal Court on Saturday sentenced Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed al-Beltagy to one year with hard labour for insulting the prosecution's representative during his trial session.

Beltagy stands trial along with deposed president Mohamed Morsy and 12 others over charges of inciting the murder of opposition protesters outside the Ettehadiya Presidential Palace in December 2012.
