Egypt Grand Mufti to rule on Badie sentence

Country's highest Islamic authority had rejected Brotherhood leader's death sentence but court asked him to reconsider.

    Egypt's highest religious authority is due to decide whether to uphold a death sentence handed to the Muslim Brotherhood's spiritual leader, Mohamed Badie.

    A court gave Badie the death penalty in June for the killing of police officers during a protest, but Shawki Allam rejected the sentence. In an unusual move, prosecutors asked the religious leader to reconsider.
