Egyptian court overturns ex-president Mursi's death sentence | Reuters

CAIRO Egypt's Court of Cassation on Tuesday overturned a death sentence against deposed president Mohammed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood and ordered a retrial. Mursi was sentenced to death in June 2015 in connection with a mass jail break during Egypt's 2011 uprising.Mursi, democratically elected after the revolution, was overthrown in mid-2013 by then-general Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, now the president, following mass protests against his rule, and immediately arrested. Tuesday's court ruling means that Mursi is no longer under threat of execution, although he is serving three lengthy jail sentences.Since toppling Mursi, Sisi has clamped down on dissent #Islam #Egypt #Middle East #Africa #Argentina #Qatar

Chile seeks help to protect world's oldest mummies | Reuters

ARICA, Chile Chilean researchers are seeking conservation aid to protect a collection of mummified human remains found in northern Chile, the oldest mummies discovered in the world to date.The nearly 300 "Chinchorro" mummies, which have been recovered in recent years from the dry coastal area near the Peru border, are thought to date from between 5000 BC to 1500 BC."The dates that we have for the bodies are from 7,000 years ago ... so they have more relative antiquity in terms of intentional work on the human body than that found in Egypt," said Sergio Medina Parra, anthropologist and department head at University of Tarapaca in the northern city of Arica. Medina is leading an attempt to get the Chinchorro mummies recognised by UN heritage body UNESCO as a world heritage site."The application is not a goal in itself, but the start of a process, of improved conservation tools, with the Chilean state and the international community," he said #Economy #Business #Egypt #markets #article

Egypt's Sisi pledges reviews of protest law, detentions | Reuters

CAIRO Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi promised on Thursday to amend a law that human rights groups say has severely restricted protest rights and hinted at possible pardons for young people imprisoned without conviction.Speaking at a youth conference in Sharm el-Sheikh, the former general said a committee would review the cases of young people held in pretrial detention and present its findings in two weeks so the presidency could take appropriate action.Sisi does not have the authority to interfere in the judicial process in Egypt but is able to issue pardons. He said the government would consider suggested amendments to the protest law presented at the conference #Politics #United States #Egypt #Middle East #markets #Crime #United Kingdom
