Egyptian presidential media adviser Ahmed El-Muslimany has denied a report by Reuters that the government offered the Muslim Brotherhood ministerial posts, to release several of its jailed members and to unfreeze the group's assets as part of a deal to end the political crisis, state news agency MENA reported.

Reuters reported earlier on Monday - citing a military source - that the offer was made in exchange for the Brotherhood to end their sit-in protests.

The Muslim Brotherhood and its allies have been holding two large sit-ins in Cairo and Giza demanding former president Mohamed Morsi to be reinstated and have held daily rallies to voice their demands since 28 June.

On 3 July, the military deposed Morsi and put forth a political roadmap in cooperation with the opposition, which calls for constitutional amendments, parliamentary and presidential elections.
