A defiant Muslim Brotherhood declared Thursday it will not back down against a crackdown by Egypt's interim government, vowing to "bring down this military coup" as hundreds of protesters stormed and torched two government buildings in Giza, state television and witnesses say.

State television footage showed firefighters evacuating employees from the larger of the two offices in Giza, Cairo's twin city on the west bank of the Nile River. Police arrested several protesters.
