A court in Egypt on Sunday sentenced three people to death for their involvement in the killing of 10 policemen and for belonging to an extremist group, a judicial source said.

The defendants were found guilty by a Cairo criminal court of being involved in the killing of 10 policemen, including an officer, between August 2013 and May 2014.

They were also convicted for belonging to the extremist group Ansar al-Sharia.

Both the defence and prosecution have the right to appeal.
