US urges Egypt against executions in mass sentencing

Relatives of supporters of Egyptian ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi gather outside the courthouse on March 25, 2014 in Minya, during the trial of some 700 Islamists charged with deadly riotingThe United States on Tuesday urged Egypt not to execute 529 supporters of deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi who were given the death penalty in a mass sentencing which has triggered an international outcry. Deputy State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf called the sentencing “shocking.” “The imposition of the death penalty for 529 defendants after a two-day summary proceeding cannot be reconciled with Egypt’s obligations under international human rights law, and its implementation of these sentences, as I said, would be unconscionable,” she stressed.
