Egypt jails 78 minors for pro-Morsi protests

An Egyptian court sentenced 78 minors to between two and five years in prison Wednesday for joining demonstrations calling for the return of the ousted Islamist president, judicial sources said.

The authorities have engaged in a crackdown on Mohamed Morsi's supporters since the army ousted him last year, with hundreds jailed in mass trials the United Nations has described as "unprecedented in recent history".

But of course Egypt is a shining democratic example, which is why they are often the #2 recipient of US military aid.
