Egypt’s Morsi gets life in jail for spying

Life sentence

An Egyptian court sentenced ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi to life in prison on Tuesday on charges of spying for Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, and Iran.
The court also confirmed death sentences against 16 other defendants on charges of delivering secret documents abroad between 2005 and 2013.
The court still has to decide whether to confirm or commute death sentences it handed down against Morsi and 100 other defendants in a separate trial on charges related to their escape from prison during the 2011 uprising that ousted veteran strongman Hosni Mubarak.
