Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group: Egypt

NOT BACKING DOWN:The organization of former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi vowed to continue its protests against the county’s military-backed rulers

AFP, CAIRO

An al-Qaeda-inspired group spearheading attacks in Sinai had earlier claimed responsibility for the suicide car bombing of the Mansoura police headquarters. Ansar Beit al-Maqdis has claimed several high-profile attacks since Morsi’s overthrow, including a September assassination attempt against the interior minister with a car bomb outside his home.

The Brotherhood has long been at odds with more radical groups inspired by al-Qaeda, which have criticized the movement for renouncing violence and embracing electoral politics, which they view as un-Islamic.
