Twenty-four Muslim Brotherhood members were referred to the general prosecution Saturday on charges of forming a terrorist group, disturbing public security, and attacking the home of Mahmoud Badr, co-founder of the Rebel (Tamarod) campaign that spearheaded protests against former president Mohamed Morsi.

The 24 accused were arrested Friday, a day that witnessed the deadliest clashes in two months as 14 were killed across Egypt in clashes between pro-Morsi protesters and security forces.

The Rebel campaign, whose petition against Morsi mobilised millions for the 30 June protests that led to the ouster of Muslim Brotherhood leader Morsi from the presidency, said on its Facebook page Friday that Muslim Brotherhood supporters were attacking Badr's home and that residents of the neighbourhood clashed with the attackers in an attempt to protect the building.

It was unclear whether Badr was inside the building.

One of Morsi's staunchest opponents, Badr has been criticised for defending the policies of the current interim government despite its heavy-handed moves against opposition forces.

Obama's cheerleaders
Obama's US cheerleaders would refer to Badr as an 'Islamophobe', if US media actually covered this...

Thuggery
The Muslim Brotherhood's failure as politicians has obviously triggered their true malicious, terrorist nature against Egypt and its sensible national figures. I think such acts of thuggery are a sign that those criminals have completely despaired of being reinstated and are now lashing about like a wounded animal.

When I read Al Ahram in English, I read of what is going on in Egypt in a clear factual way. The facts are reported and the opinions are limited to the Opinion section of the newspaper or in the comments below the article. I may not always agree or disagree with an article, but I know that I am getting information that factually states the current situation. Please continue your good reporting.
