Mass Death Sentence (And Mass Death Sentence Reversal) in Egypt

The BBC reports:

A judge in Egypt has sentenced 683 people - including Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie - to death in a mass trial, lawyers say.

. . .

The same court also reversed 492 death sentences out of 529 it passed in March, commuting most of the death sentences to life in prison.
In light of the mass reversal of sentences that accompanied the new death sentences, it's anyone's guess as to how many of these new death sentences will go unreversed.
