Egypt court seeks death for 11 in soccer stadium case
An Egyptian court on Sunday took a step towards imposing the death penalty on 11 men
An Egyptian court on Sunday took a step towards imposing the death penalty on 11 men for involvement in deadly soccer stadium violence in 2012, a televised session showed.
The judge referred the sentencing to Egypt's Grand Mufti, the country's most senior religious authority, a step towards the death penalty, which could be imposed at a later court hearing on May 30.
The Grand Mufti's decision is not binding but referral is needed in order to impose the death sentence.
