Mother of Egyptian Moustafa Yousri shouts against the court after her son was sentenced among 21 people, including prominent activists to prison terms over an unauthorized street protest in 2013, at a Cairo court, Egypt, Monday, Feb. 23, 2015. An Egyptian court sentenced Alaa Abd el-Fattah, an icon of the country’s 2011 revolt to five years in prison Monday, showing authorities’ determination to continue to stifle dissent despite promises by its president to release “wrongly jailed youths.” Another defendant, Ahmed Abdel Rahman, was also given five years. The others were sentenced to three years. (AP Photo/Amr Nabil)
