A court in Egypt on Saturday sentenced to death two supporters of deposed president Mohamed Morsi convicted of throwing youths off an apartment block roof, judicial sources said.
Both men were on trial for throwing two people off the roof of a building in the coastal city of Alexandria, last July, during mass protests demanding  Morsi\’s reinstatement.
Amateur video footage of the two young people being thrown off the building was widely broadcast. 
Egypt\’s interim authorities have been cracking down on supporters of Egypt\’s Muslim Brotherhood and Mr. Morsi, who has been in custody since he was removed from office about nine months ago.
A court in the Egyptian city of Minya recently sentenced 529 Muslim Brotherhood members to death for murdering a police officer, attacking a police station and other acts of violence. In a separate proceeding in Minya, nearly 700 Brotherhood members went on trial on chargers including murder and inciting violence.
Egyptian authorities have labeled the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group and have arrested many of its leaders.
