CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian court sentenced to death eight militants, including Islamist Adel Habara, charged with killing seven soldiers in an attack in the Nile Delta in early 2014, security and judicial sources said on Tuesday.

Judicial sources said the charges also included association with a "terrorist" organization and weapons possession. Habara received a death sentence in December for an attack in August 2013 near the border with Israel that killed 25 policemen.
