A number of Cairo offices affiliated with the Freedom and Justice Party, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, have been seized by the Egyptian government, a committee tasked with appraising and freezing the funds of the Brotherhood said in an official statement on Tuesday.

The committee also announced that it seized a hospital, a school and two foreign exchange companies linked to the group.

The committee has thus far frozen the funds and taken control of over 1,000 NGOs and nearly 100 schools allegedly affiliated with the Brotherhood. The assets of over 700 of the group's leaders have also been seized.

The Freedom and Justice Party was disbanded by a court ruling in 2014, while the Brotherhood itself was designated a terrorist group in 2013.
