CAIRO - An Egyptian criminal court ordered Monday to sentence 528 members of the Muslim Brotherhood to death over assaulting police stations in the upper Egyptian province of Minya last August, state-run Nile TV reported.

The Brotherhood suspects were charged of attacking a police premise in Mattai district and killing its deputy head after the dispersal of the ousted president Mohamed Morsi's main supporters sit-in last August.

The court also acquitted other 17 defendants.
