CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian court has sentenced Ahmed Nazif, a former prime minister under ousted president Hosni Mubarak, to five years in jail on graft charges in a retrial, judicial sources said on Wednesday.

Nazif had previously been sentenced to three years before launching an appeal that led to the retrial.
