Egyptian courts convicted 113 Muslim Brotherhood supporters on Thursday on charges including attacking police, rioting and weapons possession in three separate cases brought after protests against the army-backed government. Thursday's rulings included three-year prison terms for 63 people in a single case, one of the biggest mass sentencings to date. The judge fined each of them 50,000 Egyptian pounds ($7,200). The other two cases involved the remaining Brotherhood supporters receiving two and a half to three year prison terms for similar charges including belonging to an armed terrorist group. The Egyptian government accuses the Brotherhood of turning to violence and declared it a terrorist group on December 25. However, the group says it is committed to peaceful protest.
