Egypt court bans Muslim Brotherhood political party-BBC

8/9/14, "Egypt court bans Muslim Brotherhood's political wing," BBC

"A court in Egypt has dissolved the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the Muslim Brotherhood's political wing.

The government of President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has cracked down harshly on the Islamist movement and other opponents over the past year.

Last July, Mr Sisi - then head of the military - ousted President Mohammed Morsi, a former leader of the FJP, following mass protests.

The Brotherhood was declared a terrorist group in December."
