A military court sentenced Mohammed Ahmed Mohammed Abu Sarie to death after his conviction of killing 35-year-old Armed Forces officer Lieutenant Colonel Ahmed Farouq Mandour.
Abu Sarie was accused of shooting Colonel Ahmed with an automatic weapon, according to Egyptian newspapers.
The execution took place in a Cairo prison, after the Military Court in Ismailia approved the death sentence, adding that the defendant was a member of the now-outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group.
According to arabi21.com the number of executions related to violence under the head of the coup authority, Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, has reached 27 since he took office in June 2014.
