Egyptian Court Bans Muslim Brotherhood, Assets Seized

Ousted president was a Muslim Brother


Egypt has banned the Muslim Brotherhood from carrying out activities inside the country as its interim government looks to crack down on unrest following former President Mohammed Morsi's ouster.

"The court bans the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood organization and its non-governmental organization and all the activities that it participates in and any organization derived from it," judge Mohammed al-Sayed said in a statement on Monday, according to Reuters.
