Gunmen shot dead three Egyptian judges Saturday in the strife-torn Sinai Peninsula, where security forces are battling an Islamist insurgency spearheaded by an affiliate of the Islamic State group, police said.

The shooting in North Sinai's provincial capital El-Arish wounded two other judges and came hours after a court in Cairo sentenced ousted president Mohamed Morsi to death for his role in a mass jailbreak during the 2011 uprising.

Some of Morsi's fellow defendants included jihadists in Sinai, where militants have regularly carried out attacks against policemen and soldiers.
