According to press reports, an Egyptian court sentenced 22 Islamist terrorists to death on Thursday, including a former cop, for terror acts, including the attempt to assassinate a previous interior minister.

According to a judicial source, the terrorists were convicted guilty of 54 “terrorist activities” across Egypt, including the murder of a senior police officer and the attempted assassination of former interior minister Mohamed Ibrahim.

Members of Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, a jihadist terrorist group that swore allegiance to the Islamic State in 2014, were convicted. The Egyptian Supreme Court of Cassation maintained the prison sentences of 118 others in the same case, which ranged from a few years to live in prison.
