"Egypt's highest court of appeal has overturned death sentences against ousted President Mohammed Morsi and five other Muslim Brotherhood leaders. The Court of Cassation ordered that the six men face a retrial in connection with a mass prison break during the 2011 uprising against Hosni Mubarak. Twenty-one life sentences for other Brotherhood members were overturned. Morsi was elected president in 2012 but was removed by the military a year later after protests against his rule." (11/15/16)
