An Egyptian court has sentenced thirty additional people to more than three years in prison for violent protests.

They were found guilty on Monday of supporting deposed Islamist president Mohammed Morsi. The military-installed authorities have engaged in a sweeping crackdown against Morsi's supporters and his Muslim Brotherhood since his ouster in July. The crackdown has left more than 1 400 people dead, and thousands have been jailed. More than 1-thousand Morsi supporters have been convicted in mass trials, including 5-hundred-and-29 sentenced to death last month. For more on this story we are joined in the studio by Afro Middle East Centre Director Na'eem Jeenah.
