Thousands of Egyptian university students are demonstrating against jail sentences for 25 key members of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. A military court on Tuesday convicted the group's chief strategist, Khayrat el-Shater, and its prominent financier, Hassan Malek, of money laundering and sentenced them to seven years in prison. Students of Cairo and Al-Azhar universities took part in the protests Wednesday, carrying pictures of the jailed leaders and slogans denouncing the verdicts as too harsh. Some protesters chained their hands while others raised copies of the Quran, Islam's holy book.
