Morsi verdict alarms US, experts see 'war' on Brotherhood

Egypt's deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi raises his hands from behind the defendant's cage as the judge reads out his verdict sentencing him to death at the police academy in Cairo on May 16, 2015The United States expressed alarm Sunday at death sentences for Egypt’s ousted president Mohamed Morsi and dozens of others, a verdict experts called a declaration of “total war” on his Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi was among more than 100 defendants given the death penalty Saturday for their role in a mass jailbreak during the 2011 uprising. He ruled for only a year before mass protests spurred then army chief and now President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to overthrow him in July 2013. Sisi won a presidential election in May 2014 backed by Egyptians tired of political turmoil in the world’s most populous Arab nation following the 2011 revolt against longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak.
