CAIRO - An Egyptian court sentenced two men to life imprisonment and a third to 20 years in jail on Thursday, for sexually assaulting and beating women during celebrations held after President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi's election.



The men were also asked to pay 100,000 pounds (USD 14,000) each in compensation to their victims, who were forcibly separated from their friends and family, stripped of their clothes, beaten and sexually assaulted by gangs of men during a rally on June 6.

A United Nations' report on women last year said 99.3 percent of women and girls had been subjected to sexual harassment in Egypt.
