An Egyptian court on Tuesday sentenced ousted president Mohamed Morsi to 20 years in prison for inciting the killings of protestors outside the Ittihadiya presidential palace in December 2012.

However, Morsi and all other 14 defendants in the case were acquitted of committing premeditated murder and possessing weapons.

This is the first verdict issued against Morsi since his ouster in July 2013.
