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.
