The presidential candidate for Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood on Tuesday sought to expand his support base ahead of a tight runoff against an ex-regime figure next month, vowing to ensure the full rights of Christians and women if he is elected.
When Mahmoud al-Alami was 9 years old, an Israeli soldier caught him throwing rocks, took him out of his uncle's arms, slung him over his shoulders and carried him away.
Mr. al-Tamimi said he was at the mercy of statements taken from vulnerable youths interrogated by Israeli forces.
Mr. al-Tamimi said the sentence highlighted the "absurdity" of the case, matching the time he spent in prison before his 85-year-old mother suffered a stroke, prompting his conditional release in April.
