Egypt court sentences Ayman Nour
An Egyptian court sentenced opposition politician and former presidential candidate Ayman Nour on Saturday to five years in jail on forgery charges
Nour, leader of the liberal Ghad (Tomorrow) Party and the main challenger to President Hosni Mubarak in the September elections, will appeal against the conviction, his lawyer said.
Nour's wife, Gameela Ismail, who has organised daily protests against the trial, led supporters in chants of "Down with Mubarak, Down with the regime."
