Egypt considers 37 death sentences for ISIS members

An Egyptian court on Saturday referred the death sentences of 37 ISIS members, including one of the country’s most high-profile militants, to the top religious authority. Customarily, all death sentences in Egypt are sent to the Grand Mufti for his advice. The extremists were charged with belonging to a local affiliate of ISIS. Among those referred are Hisham El Ashmawi.
