"An Egyptian police officer convicted of killing 20 protesters during demonstrations that brought down Hosni Mubarak's government in February has been sentenced to death. Mohamed Ibrahim Abdel-Monem was found guilty in his absence on Sunday of shooting dead 'at random' 20 protesters on January 28, one of the most violent days of the uprising that lasted 18 days. The criminal court in Cairo referred the case to the Grand Mufti, Egypt's religious authority who must approve all death sentences." (05/22/11)
