Cairo: A court in Egypt has upheld the death sentences of 183 Muslim Brotherhood supporters over a 2013 attack on a police station here.

The men were convicted in the killings of 16 policemen in the town of Kardas, BBC reported.

The attack took place after Egyptian military forces cracked down on protests over the ousting of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi in July.

Hundreds of death sentences have been passed on Morsi's supporters since but none have been carried out.
