Muslim Brotherhood declared as 'terrorist organisation'
Dec 26, 2013

Egypt's military ruled government has declared the Muslim Brotherhood of ousted president Mohamed Morsi a "terrorist" group, banning all its activities including demonstrations. Egypt’s leaders have been in conflict with the movement since July, when the military deposed Mohamed Morsi, Egypt’s first democratically elected president and a former Brotherhood leader.

The decision is likely to accelerate a crackdown on the movement that has killed more than 1,000 people, mostly Islamists, in street clashes and imprisoned thousands since Morsi's overthrow by the military in July.

The Brotherhood, founded in 1928, denounced violence in the late 1970s. The Brotherhood has organizations and political parties in other nations in the region.
