Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has called for a popular uprising against the military after more than 40 people died in Cairo where ex-president Mohammed Morsi is reportedly being held.
Seventeen people have been sentenced to life for their involvement in deadly unrest when then-General el-Sissi announced his presidential bid. Now Egypt's president, he has warned against challenging his grasp on power.
Experts from Egypt and Germany have found an ancient necropolis, containing more than 1,000 statues and eight tombs. It's the fourth major discovery in a year, and could eventually prove a much-needed boon to tourism.
An Egyptian court has fined former President Mohammed Morsi and sentenced him to three years in prison. Separately, human rights lawyer and activist Mahinour el-Masry was given a two-year prison sentence.
The three militant deaths come after a gunman shot dead nine people, including six Coptic Christians and a policeman. Police said the suspected attacker, Ibrahim Ismail, had been involved in previous deadly attacks.
