Brotherhood demands army downfall, furious relatives decry death verdict

Families of more than 500 members of the Muslim Brotherhood sentenced to death are angry.

Lawyers said it's the biggest mass death sentence in Egypt's modern history.

Most of the defendants at Monday's hearing were detained and charged with carrying out attacks during clashes which erupted in the southern province of al-Minya after the forced dispersal of two Muslim Brotherhood protest camps in Cairo on August 14.
