CAIRO (AP) -- An Egyptian court has sentenced four members of the banned Muslim Brotherhood organization to death and 14 to life in prison.

The case stems from clashes near the Brotherhood's headquarters on June 30, 2013, four days before the ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. The fighting left 11 people dead and 91 wounded. The men were accused of murder and possession of firearms, among other charges. The verdict can be appealed.

Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohammed Badie and his deputy Khairat al-Shater were among those sentenced to life, along with former lawmaker Mohammed el-Beltagy and party head Saad el-Katatni and his deputy, Essam el-Erian.

Some 22,000 people have been arrested since Morsi's ouster, including most of the Brotherhood's leaders, as well as non-Islamist activists swept up by police during protests.
