CAIRO - An Egyptian court on Saturday sentenced a total of ten Muslim Brotherhood members to death over the charges of inciting violence and murder after the ouster of the country's Islamist President Mohamed Morsi last July, state TV reported.

Previously, the state television reported that the Brotherhood' s spiritual leader Mohamed Badie was among the convicted, yet the latest news confirmed that he was not on the list.

Badie was sentenced to death with nearly 700 Brotherhood supporters late April in a separate case on the charge of attempted killing of a policeman in the Nile river city of Minya last August.
