Two handed life sentences, others cleared in Zeitoun cell trial

On Sunday, Supreme State Security Court handed two defendants life sentences and sentenced two others to seven years for involvement in the Zeitoun terrorist cell case.


The court also cleared a number of other defendants.


Prosecutors had accused the defendants of forming a jihadist group, attacking Copts and tourists and damaging their property.


Mostafa Nassef, a lawyer defending one of the defendants, said the accusation was null and called, in his closing argument, for the defendants to be acquitted.
