CAIRO (AFP) - An Egyptian court sentenced 102 supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Mursi to 10 years in prison on Saturday over protest violence, state television reported.

The army-installed government has rounded up thousands of Mursi supporters and put them on mass trials since overthrowing him in July.

The Cairo court sentenced two others to seven years in prison. Last week a court in the southern city of Minya sentenced 683 people, including the leader of Mr Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood, to death in an initial ruling.
