An Egyptian court sentenced Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammad Badie and other prominent Brotherhood figures to life in prison on Saturday over an attack on a police station in 2013, judicial sources said, part of a sustained crackdown on the group.

The assault was part of a wave of violence that rocked the country after the army removed elected Islamist president Mohammad Mursi from power following mass protests against his rule in June 2013.

Senior Brotherhood figure Mohamed El-Beltagy and Islamist cleric Safwat Hegazy were also sentenced to life imprisonment on Saturday.
