Egypt executes three political prisoners after appeal rejected

Sisi is more harsh than Mubarak, big screw up for the US to have ever influenced events in the "Arab Spring", at least in this case..  Obama's administration. BTW, the article says confessions obtained through torture.  And I honestly had a good idea at the time, it wasn't right to ask Mubarak to leave. Look how much trouble has happened since. For the record, I'd listen to Glenn Beck back then, and he was for Mubarak stepping down too.  I never thought Mubarak, who replaced Sadat, was too bad.

Egyptian authorities executed three political prisoners on Thursday, one year after they were sentenced to death on charges of killing the son of a judge, according to local rights activists.

According to Ahmed Attar, an Egyptian rights defender based in London, families of three men were informed today by a morgue in Alexandria that they had been executed by hanging and that their bodies were ready for burial.

Another Egyptian rights activist who knew the three men said they were all members of the Muslim Brotherhood and had taken part in protests opposing the military coup led by President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi against his predecessor Mohamed Morsi, who hailed from the group.

A sh**hole country if there ever was one.
