ABU DHABI: An Abu Dhabi court Tuesday sent a group of 30 Emiratis and Egyptians to jail for terms ranging from three months to five years for forming a Muslim Brotherhood cell, a judicial source said.

The cell comprised 10 Emiratis and 20 Egyptians, including six who remain at large and were sentenced in absentia. The Egyptians will be deported after serving their sentence, the source told AFP.

The group is banned in much of the region, and the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia pledged billions of dollars in aid to Egypt after the military in July overthrew president Mohamed Morsi, who hails from the Brotherhood, and launched a brutal crackdown on his supporters.
