Egypt sentences 22 members of Muslim Brotherhood to death

For some strange reason, the convicted, instead of rejoicing that they finally achieved the much coveted martyrdom, plan to appeal. It's like a commercial, where they try to sell to you something they don't want for themselves.
CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian court sentenced 22 members of the Muslim Brotherhood to death on Monday over an attack on a police station in a district outside Cairo in 2013, judicial sources said.

The assault was part of a wave of violence that rocked the country after the army removed elected Islamist president Mohamed Mursi from power following mass protests against his rule in June 2013.

One other defendant, who is a juvenile, was given a 10 year sentence, the sources said. A lawyer for the convicted men said they would appeal.
