A court in Minya, Egypt, has sentenced to death 529 members of the Muslim Brotherhood movement for the killing of a police officer. The verdict comes after 26 death sentences were handed down last week, and after Egypt's military rulers killed more than 1,000 brotherhood supporters in last year's unrest.
