CAIRO - An Egyptian court sentenced former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi to death on Tuesday in a case related to a 2011 mass jail break.

The court had sought the death penalty for Morsi in May and referred its recommendation to Grand Mufti Shawqi Allam, the country's most senior religious authority, a step required by law for death sentences.

The general guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohamed Badie, was also sentenced to death.

The verdicts can be appealed.
