CAIRO, EGYPT (Worthy News)-- Twelve Islamists were sentenced to death by an Egyptian judge on Wednesday for the murder of Gen. Nabil Farrag, a senior police official.
The ruling was aired live on Egyptian television. As Judge Moataz Khafagi delivered the sentence, the defendants broke out in chants of "God is great."
