Seventeen people have been sentenced to death by an Egyptian military court over their involvement in bomb attacks on Coptic Christian churches.
A further 19 people were handed life jail terms over the attacks, which took place in 2016 and 2017, state news agency Mena reported on Thursday.
The Islamic State (IS) group said its militants were behind the suicide bombings that killed dozens of people.
Amnesty International described the death sentences as “grossly unfair”.
