"Muslim Brotherhood won't work with 'usurper' government," said Sheikh Abdel Rahman El-Bar

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood will not work with "the usurper authorities," said Abdel Rahman El-Bar, a member of the Brotherhood executive board on Thursday, rejecting feelers from the newly sworn-in head of state after the military removed Islamist President Mohamed Morsi from power.

"We reject participation in any work with the usurper authorities," Sheikh Abdel Rahman El-Bar said in a statement published on the group's website.

"We call on protesters to show self restraint and stay peaceful. We reject the oppressive, police state practices: killing, arrests, curbing media freedom and closing TV channels."
