CAIRO - An Egyptian court sentenced 126 Muslim Brotherhood supporters to 10 years in prison each on Sunday, state TV reported, in a case related to violence in the Nile Delta province of Kafr el-Sheikh last August after the overthrow of president Mohamed Morsi.

The defendants chanted "down with military rule" as Judge Hassan Fareed read out the sentences at the court convened at a police academy in Cairo, a witness said. The charges against the defendants included membership of a terrorist group.
