Egypt’s deposed president Morsi sentenced to life

The Egyptian Islamist politician Mohamed Morsi has been sentenced to life in prison following an espionage trial, AFP reported Saturday. Morsi, who served as Egypt’s president between 2012 and 2013, received life imprisonment for leading an unlawful organization, his lawyer Abdel Moneim Abdel Maksoud told AFP, adding that his defendant was also given another 15-year jail term and convicted of having “stolen secret documents concerning state security.” The ex-president has been acquitted of charges of having supplied Qatar with classified documents. In a number of separate trials, Morsi has previously been sentenced to death, and received another life sentence and a 20-year jail term.

Southwest monsoon expected

Met Dept has said that the southwest monsoon is expected to gain momentum and advance further into several parts of drought-hit Maharashtra and central India.
It said that conditions are favourable for the monsoon to advance into entire Konkan and Goa, drought-hit central Maharashtra, Marathwada, remaining parts of north interior Karnataka, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and parts of Madhya Pradesh and Bihar.
The weatherman has forecast an above normal monsoon this year.
However, its onset over Kerala, which marks the commencement of the rainy season in the country, was on June 8th, seven days later than predicted.
Also, it made a slow progress due to lack of a favourable system that could have given it a boost to move forward.
The slow pace had increased the rain deficiency to 25 per cent. It is expected to make its way to Delhi in the first week of July.
