The court also upheld death sentences for three other defendants, a life sentence and a 15-year sentence for two others.

Amid the crisis between several Arab states and Qatar, an Egyptian court on Saturday sentenced former President Mohamed Morsi to 25 years in prison in the case involving leaked documents to Doha.

Egypt's Court of Cassation on Saturday reduced Mursi's sentence in the Qatar case to 25 years in its final ruling, from an original 40 years.

According to the court order, the defendants committed their alleged crimes between the years 2012 and 2016 in Matrouh, Cairo and Alexandria governorates in Egypt, and outside Egypt also.

In 2014, Morsi and nine other senior officials were accused of "endangering Egypt's national security" after highly-classified documents were leaked to Qatar.

The life sentence for Morsi is now final while the Court of Cassation canceled another 15-year prison sentence handed down to him.

Analysts said the retail sales report showed some of the effects of Hurricane Harvey, which hit Texas in the last week of August. Survey evidence suggests solid confidence among consumers which should underpin spending over the next few months.


Morsi served as Egypt's first democratically-elected president after the fall of former dictator Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood has been blacklisted as a terrorist group.

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said military reverses for IS in war-torn Syria were driving its fighters to try to relocate to Libya and the Sinai Peninsula of eastern Egypt. But his death sentence verdict was overturned. His decision, however, is not binding.

Charges include belonging to a militant group affiliated with ISIL's branch in Libya, weapons possession, inciting violence and participating in the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christian workers in Libya in 2015.

The Egyptian government has been cracking down on the Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters since the ouster of Morsi, which left thousands in jail, and hundreds facing trials on a variety of charges.
