Leader says no to death sentences

CAIRO:

Egypt's top religious authority has rejected a death sentence for the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and 13 associates for murder and violence, but was asked yesterday by a court to reconsider. The sentence of Mohamed Badie and the other men were referred to Grand Mufti Shawqi Allam, Egypt's highest Islamic legal official.
