Ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi looks on from behind bars, along with other Muslim Brotherhood members at a court in the outskirts of CairoBy Mahmoud Mourad CAIRO (Reuters) - Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Mursi was sentenced to 20 years in prison without parole on Tuesday on charges arising from the killing of protesters, nearly three years after he became Egypt's first freely elected president. Mursi stood in a cage in court as judge Ahmed Sabry Youssef read out the ruling against him and 12 other Brotherhood members, including senior figures Mohamed el-Beltagy and Essam el-Erian. Amnesty International described the ruling as "a travesty of justice" that "shatters any remaining illusion of independence and impartiality in Egypt’s criminal justice system". The rights group called for Mursi to be retried in a civilian court "in line with international standards" or released.
