    BBC journalists and staff, hold a minute of silence in support of the jailed journalists in Egypt, exactly 24 hours after their sentencing, outside the BBC headquarters in central London, Tuesday, June 24, 2014. An Egyptian court on Monday convicted three journalists from Al-Jazeera English and sentenced them to seven years in prison each on terrorism-related charges, bringing widespread criticism that the verdict was a blow to freedom of expression. The three, Australian Peter Greste, Canadian-Egyptian Mohamed Fahmy and Egyptian Baher Mohammed, have been detained since December charged with supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, which has been declared a terrorist organization, and of fabricating footage to undermine Egypt's national security and make it appear the country was facing civil war.

The Muslim Brotherhood's Supreme Guide, Mohammed Badie and over 180 others were sentenced to death Saturday by an Egyptian court in the latest mass trial following last year's overthrow of the country's Islamist president. The ruling by the southern Minya Criminal Court is the largest confirmed mass death sentence to be handed down in Egypt in recent memory. The court acquitted more than 400 others in the case and family members of the accused wailed or cheered the verdicts. (AP Photo/Ravy Shaker, El Shorouk newspaper) EGYPT OUT
