The Muslim Brotherhood had another bad day:
An Egyptian court handed down prison sentences to three of the country’s most prominent youth activists Sunday in the first use of a controversial new protest law, a harsh warning to the secular groups that supported the military’s ouster of Islamist president Mohammed Morsi but have since grown critical of the army-backed government that replaced him.
Ahmed Maher, Ahmed Douma and Mohammed Adel, founders of the April 6 movement, each received three years in prison on charges of holding an illegal rally and assaulting police. According to their lawyers, prosecutors said they had thrown rocks at police, but their defense disputed that they had done the throwing.
Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of fascists.
