An Egyptian court on Wednesday convicted 36 student supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi of "rioting" while acquitting a Turkish student of the same charges.
The Cairo Criminal Court found the students – 53 males and ten females – guilty of rioting and participating in an unlicensed demonstration at eastern Cairo's Al-Azhar University in late 2013.
The ten female students were slapped with one-year jail terms each, while the rest received prison terms of between three and seven years each.
They were also each fined the equivalent of $285.
A photojournalist, a Turkish student and 11 other defendants were acquitted.
Al-Azhar University had become a main venue for protests in support of former President Mohamed Morsi, who was ousted by the military in July of 2013.
