An Egyptian toddler has been sentenced to life in an apparent case of mistaken identity.

An Egyptian toddler has been sentenced to life in an apparent case of mistaken identity.

The three-year-old boy was mistakenly sentenced last week.

He was found guilty of various crimes committed during a protest in 2014, when he was just sixteen-months-old.

Authorities are now realizing it was a case of mistaken identity.

The military released a statement saying the person wanted in the case was actually a 16-year-old who had the same name as the young boy, and who escaped authorities.
