Former Egyptian leader Mohamed Morsi has been sentenced to life in prison for espionage.
Ex-President Mohamed Morsi was accused of spying on behalf of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, Lebanese militants Hezbollah and Iran.
The court is yet to decide on whether to uphold death sentences given to Mohamed Morsi and 100 others over a mass prison break in 2011.
Mohamed Morsi’s supporters have described the charges against him as “farcical”.
The former leader was deposed in July 2013 following mass street protests against his rule and is already serving a 20-year jail term for ordering the arrest and torture of demonstrators.
The judge said on June 16 that the Muslim Brotherhood “collaborated with Palestinian Hamas to infiltrate Egypt’s eastern borders and attack prisons”, state TV reported.
Mohamed Morsi was given life, while 16 other Muslim Brotherhood members – including leader Khairat al-Shater – were sentenced to death on charges of delivering secret documents abroad between 2005 and 2013.
In Egypt, a life sentence is 25 years in jail.
A final ruling on Mohamed Morsi’s death sentence for the 2011 prison break is expected after a court recess. It has been awaiting the opinion of Egypt’s highest religious figure, the Grand Mufti.
Justin Bieber was released from a Miami jail on Thursday afternoon following his arrest hours earlier for DUI, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest.
As he walked out of the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center surrounded by police, Justin Bieber, 19, climbed atop his waiting SUV, sat down and waved to fans while putting on a brave face.
Clad in a black hoodie, sunglasses and the same baggy leather shorts he was wearing when he was busted for allegedly drag-racing in the wee hours of Thursday morning, Justin Bieber tried to look as unaffected as possible by the incident by acknowledging the looky-loos waiting outside the jail.

Justin Bieber’s swagger-laden stance upon his release echoed his smiley mugshot and reported bad attitude with the arresting officers. He reportedly asked one: “Why the **** are you doing this?”
But behind the scenes, it was apparently a different story.
According to People magazine, after a judge set his bond for $2,500 via a video link from jail, Justin Bieber broke down.
Wearing a red jail jumpsuit with the sleeves rolled up far enough to show off his tattoos, Justin Bieber was “crying his eyes out,” says a source.

Even she was due to serve a 30 days sentence, Lindsay Lohan has been released from jail after just 4.5 hours in custody.
Lindsay Lohan enjoyed a last supper with friends before she checked into the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, CA , last night just before 9:00 p.m. to begin serving her 30-day jail sentence.
LiLo didn’t need to pack an overnight bag though as she was released at approximately 1:30 a.m. and headed back to her rented home having spent almost as much time out eating sushi earlier in the evening as she spent behind bars.

Lindsay Lohan early release is thought to be due to overcrowding in prison.
The actress must now complete the remaining 53 days of her community service, including at least 12 days a month at the county morgue.
The sentence also requires Lindsay Lohan to undergo 18 psychotherapy sessions and appear monthly at court hearings between December 2011 and March 2012.
Judge Stephanie Sautner also said Lindsay Lohan can no longer leave the country and needs the permission of her new “no-nonsense” probation officer to travel outside California.
Lindsay Lohan, 25, will have to serve 423 hours at the county morgue, where for nearly two weeks she has been scrubbing floors, cleaning toilets and washing dirty sheets.
After jailing Lindsay Lohan, Judge Stephanie Sautner said: “You are not to get house arrest or early release, except for that required by the law.“
The sentence marked LiLo’s fifth jail term since her arrest in 2007 for drunken driving.
After her sentencing, Los Angeles County Sheriff spokesman, Steve Whitmore said: “It’s possible she could be booked in and booked out the same day.
“It depends on the fluctuations of the day, what’s going on in the jail.”
Lindsay Lohan was set to begin her 30 day jail sentence after being found guilty of violating her probation and was ordered to check in to the Lynwood Regional Correctional Facility before November 9 but found time to tie up some loose ends first.
On Saturday night Lindsay Lohan and friends went to Wabi-Sabi Sushi and Asian restaurant for a low key dinner.
LiLo seemed in high spirits as she laughed in the bar, which is just a stone’s throw from her home in the trendy enclave.
She has had a busy few days and reportedly stripped for Playboy on Wednesday.
But it is said the shoot was the second for Lindsay Lohan after Hugh Hefner decided he wasn’t happy with the first set of photos and hired a new photographer.
Sources told RadarOnline: “Lindsay was told that the Playboy executives wanted to go another direction with her shoot so they asked her to come back for a second time.
“There is never a guarantee that everyone will like the photos or that they will be of high enough quality to use for the cover, but Playboy wanted to make sure that Lindsay’s pictures were exactly what they wanted.”
On Wednesday, Lindsay Lohan waived her rights at her probation violation hearing at the Los Angeles Superior Court Airport Branch and admitted the violation.
Judge Stephanie Sautner ordered her to surrender to the jail by Wednesday.
Lindsay Lohan was not immediately put behind bars because the judge decided to allow her time to complete her nude photo shoot for Playboy, according to TMZ.
Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, is understood to have told the judge in chambers that her client had a $1million contract with Hugh Hefner’s publication.
As well as serving the jail time the star must continue her community service at the Los Angeles county morgue. But TMZ reported that Lindsay Lohan may serve just minutes behind bars.
A source within the Sheriff’s Department told TMZ that if someone receives a misdemeanor sentence of 90 days or less, they are routinely processed in and then released.
Lindsay Lohan has been ordered to serve 30 days in jail on Wednesday after she admitted to violating her probation.
Lindsay Lohan, 25, must surrender to the county jail by November 9.
Judge Stephanie Sautner of Los Angeles Superior Court ordered Lindsay Lohan to 53 days of community service at the county morgue and numerous sessions with a psychotherapist.
Judge Stephanie Sautner imposed strict conditions on Lindsay Lohan, telling her that she will now have to perform all of her community service at the morgue or risk serving an additional 270 days in jail.
Lindsay Lohan’s sentence will likely be shortened due to jail overcrowding.
The actress earlier arrived at the Los Angeles Superior Court Airport branch wearing a navy polka dot dress and Giuseppe Zanotti heels, stepping out of a blacked out Cadillac Escalade SUV to a barrage of flashbulbs.

Inside the court Lindsay Lohan admitted to violating her probation in theft and DUI cases by failing to show up at community-service appointments at a Los Angeles skid row women’s shelter.
Judge Stephanie Sautner revoked Lindsay Lohan’s probation at a hearing on October 19, when she lashed out at the actress, saying she had repeatedly violated the terms of her probation.
Lindsay Lohan was handcuffed in court and booked, but she was released a short time later on $100,000 bail pending today’s hearing.
According to Judge Stephanie Sautner, Lindsay Lohan missed nine appointments at the Downtown Women’s Shelter, where she had been ordered to perform community service.
In some cases, Lindsay Lohan left the shelter after about an hour even though she had been ordered to remain there for at least four hours each time.
The actress pleaded no contest May 11 to a misdemeanor grand theft charge involving a necklace priced at $2,500 that was taken from a Venice jewellery store.
Lindsay Lohan was placed on three years probation and ordered to spend 120 days in jail and complete the 480 hours of community service to which she had been previously sentenced for violating her probation in a 2007 misdemeanor DUI case.
She was ordered in May to have her 480 hours of community service completed by April 2012, with 360 hours at the women’s center and another 120 hours at the county morgue. As of the last court hearing, Lindsay Lohan had completed about 21 of the 360 hours at the skid row shelter for women, Judge Sautner said.
After revoking the Lindsay Lohan’s probation, Judge Stephanie Sautner ordered the actress to perform at least 16 hours of community service work at the county morgue before today’s hearing. That effort got off to a bad start when – the day after her probation was revoked – Lindsay Lohan showed up late and was turned away from the coroner’s office.
The actress showed up early the next day, and she has made additional trips to the facility since.
Lindsay Lohan blamed her initial tardiness on confusion over where to report and delays prompted by the crush of media waiting for her at the coroner’s office.
