CAIRO (AP) — Journalists from Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood say security forces have shuttered the main office of the newspaper of the group's political party, Freedom and Justice, and confiscated equipment.
In a statement Wednesday, journalists from the daily appealed to Egypt's press syndicate to take action against the closure in Cairo's Manial district, where the office is now sealed.
The closure comes two days after a court ordered the group outlawed and its assets seized. Egypt's interim government however said Tuesday that it would not ban the group until the ruling is upheld by a higher tribunal.
The shuttering of the newspaper is part of an extensive crackdown on the Brotherhood since Islamist president Mohammed Morsi was ousted on July 3, after millions took to the streets demanding him to step down.
