An Egyptian court signaled on Thursday it wanted death sentences for the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and 13 other defendants charged with murder and firearms possession, when it referred the case to the country’s religious authorities. Judicial sources said a judge at a court in a Cairo suburb referred all 14 of the defendants to the Mufti, the highest Islamic legal official, who must give an opinion on death sentences before they can be confirmed. The court decision came less than two weeks after former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi took office as president.
