An Egyptian court has sentenced to death seven men, including prominent Islamist militant Adel Habara, charged with killing 25 policemen last year in an attack near the border with Israel, judicial sources said on Saturday.

The attack took place in August 2013 following the government's violent clearing of two protest camps in Cairo, where supporters of deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi had gathered to demand his reinstatement.

The ruling, which can be appealed, followed the endorsement of the death sentence by the Grand Mufti, Egypt's highest Sunni Muslim authority.
