An Egyptian court upheld the death sentences of 28 people accused of plotting the assassination of Hisham Barakat, the nation's top prosecutor, in 2015.

The defendants were convicted of premeditated murder, association with a terrorist organisation and possessing weapons and explosives.

Saturday's sentences come after consultation with the Grand Mufti, Egypt's top religious authority, over preliminary death sentences handed to the defendants in June.

The sentences, confirmed by the court in Saturday's hearing after the Grand Mufti's approval, can be appealed. That official upheld the capital sentences for 28 of the 31 individuals.
