An Egyptian court has overturned the death sentences of 149 supporters of the banned Muslim Brotherhood group and ordered a retrial.

The defendants were convicted of carrying out a 2013 attack on a police station in Kerdasa, near Cairo, in which at least 11 officers were killed.

Egypt has cracked down on Islamists since the army overthrew President Mohammed Morsi in 2013.
