The Egyptian authority has executed nine people who were found guilty of involvement in the killing of 13 policemen during the unrest in 2013 following the removal of the Islamist Mohamed Morsi from power.

Local media reported that the nine were part of a group of 20 people sentenced to death for the attack on a police station after security forces broke up a mass sit-in protest in Cairo by supporters of Morsi. Which led to the death of hundreds of protesters.

However, International has condemned the executions as a horrifying example of the Egyptian authorities’ contempt for the right to life.
