Egyptian military court upholds two death sentences over 2013 murder of police conscripts
[Al Ahram] Egypt’s high military appeals court upheld on Tuesday death sentences handed to two defendants over the August 2013 murder of two police personnel in North Sinai.

A first-degree military court originally sentenced the pair to death in 2015 for their involvement in the Lion of Islam attack on al-Gora checkpoint in the North Sinai city of al-Arish, and for possessing illegal firearms.

The attack resulted in the deaths of two police conscripts and injured another officer.

Tuesday's ruling cannot be appealed.
