🇪🇬 Egypt executes nine over 2015 murder of prosecutor Hisham Barakat | Al Jazeera English

  • 0

Egyptian authorities have executed nine suspected Muslim Brotherhood members convicted of the involvement in the assassination of Egypt's top prosecutor Hisham Barakat. The executions, by hanging, were carried out on Wednesday in a Cairo prison. In November, Egypt's top appeals court had confirmed the death sentence for the nine people convicted in then-chief prosecutor Barakat's murder in June 2015. An interior ministry official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to brief media, told the AP news agency that the families of the men were told to pick up their bodies from a Cairo morgue. A total of 15 people have been executed in Egypt since the start of the year. Rights group Amnesty International had appealed to the authorities on Tuesday to halt the executions, citing testimony by the defendants that they had been secretly arrested and tortured into confessing. Hussein Baoumi, an Egypt Researcher at Amnesty International, talked to Al Jazeera about the executions. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/

🇺🇸🇸🇦 Trump's 'hypocritical' nuclear sale to Saudi Arabia | Al Jazeera English

  • 0

US President Donald Trump has bypassed Congress to advance the sale of US nuclear power plants to Saudi Arabia, despite concerns it would violate US law, according to a new report by a congressional committee. Multiple unnamed "whistleblowers" have warned about White House attempts to hurry the transfer of highly sensitive US nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia, according to the staff report by the House Oversight and Reform Committee. Security analysts have expressed worries that the technology would allow Saudi Arabia to produce nuclear weapons in the future, potentially contributing to an arms race in the Middle East, while US legislators are concerned about the stability of Saudi leadership under Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Rami Khouri, professor of journalism at the American University of Beirut and a senior fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School, talks to Al Jazeera about what he sees is a "hypocritical" move by the US. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/

A report in the New York Times is raising questions about whether the US president went further than previously reported to try and stop investigations into him and his close allies.

Trump denies doing so, but if true, this could have serious implications for the president.
