An Egyptian court has sentenced at least 185 Muslim Brotherhood supporters to death for an attack on a Cairo police station last year.
The judgement, delivered on Tuesday, comes days after several leaders of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood were sentenced to jail for misconduct in the courtroom following the acquittal of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
The attack on the police station, which left 11 officers dead, came during heavy crackdown on Brotherhood camps in the country last August.
151 of those sentenced are already in custody, Reuters reported.
Hundreds of supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood have been detained by authorities ever since Islamic leader and for President Mohammed Morsi was ousted last year.
Scores of people have been sentenced to death by Egyptian courts since last year, with more than 500 people sentenced earlier this year for an attack on another police station.
However, none of them have been executed yet.
On Sunday, a judge sentenced the leader of Muslim Brotherhood and 25 others to three years in jail for insulting the court during the trial of 100 supporters on Sunday for charges of storming prisons during the uprising.
Egypt has erupted in violence since the acquittal of Mubarak last week on charges of planning the killings of protesters during the 2011 Arab Spring. The Cairo court also cleared Mubarak and his two sons of corruption charges.
Egypt's public prosecutor has appealed the court ruling citing 'legal flaws'.
