Egypt: 4 get life for roles in Cairo bombings

A security court convicted and sentenced four Egyptian terror suspects on Monday to life in prison for their involvement in three 2005 terrorist attacks that killed two French tourists and an American, judicial officials said. Five others, including two women, received jail sentences that ranged from one to 10 years in prison, while the court quitted four others over the lack of evidence, the officials said. The verdict hearing for another suspect was postponed because he was sick and could not attend, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not allowed to speak to the press.
