A leader of the Muslim Brotherhood vowed that the movement would keep up protests after Egypt's government designated it a "terrorist" group on Wednesday.

"The protests will continue, certainly," Ibrahim Munir, a member of the group's executive council who is in exile in London, told AFP, adding the move was "illegitimate".

"This is an attempt to frame the Brotherhood," Munir said of the decision, taken a day after a suicide bombing of a police headquarters in the city of Mansoura killed 15 people, in an attack claimed by an Al-Qaeda-inspired militant group.

The interim government blamed the movement for the bombing and said on Wednesday that it had "decided to declare the Muslim Brotherhood movement a terrorist organisation".

MB should define what a protest means
For three years, the MB brand of protesting has consisted of fire bombs, stone throwing, destruction and burning of public buildings, cars and places of worship. There isn't a wall in entire Egypt without some MB defacing it with slogans and threats. The amount of weapons confiscated from MB protesters should be a clear indication that the MB money is spent mostly on violence against Egyptians; this is how they protest.
