Egypt Designates Muslim Brotherhood As Terrorist Group

Share this article
The Egyptian government intensified its crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood on Wednesday, formally listing the group as a terrorist organization after accusing it of carrying out a suicide bomb attack on a police station that killed 16 people. The Brotherhood condemned the attack on Tuesday in the Nile Delta city of Mansoura, north of Cairo. Earlier in the day, a Sinai-based militant group, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis had claimed responsibility for the attack that wounded some 140 people. The move gives the authorities the power to charge any member of deposed President Mohamed Mursi's movement with belonging to a terrorist group, as well as anyone who finances the group or promotes it "verbally, or in writing".
