Brotherhood: 7 sentenced to 10 years, 8 acquitted over 2013 Damietta riots

The criminal court of the Nile Delta province of Damietta sentenced seven Muslim Brotherhood loyalists to ten years in absentia, while acquitting eight others from charges of vandalizing a local council in 2013.
The accused were found guilty of ransacking the local council of the town of Kafr al-Battikh during a protest condemning the bloody dispersal of pro-Brotherhood sit-ins in Cairo’s Rabaa Al-Adaweya and al-Nahda squares in August 2013.
Prosecutors accused the defendants of setting fire to the building, damaging public property and possession of arms and molotovs.
