CAIRO - An Egyptian rights group said on Tuesday it was "deeply troubled" by the sentencing of a teenager to death and called for the verdict to be overturned.

A military court on Monday sentenced the 17-year-old and three other men to be hanged for kidnapping and raping a young woman, the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights (EIPR) said.
