Egyptian court bans Hamas activities in country

CAIRO: An Egyptian court has banned all activities of Hamas, an offshoot of the country’s Muslim Brotherhood which has been declared a terrorist group by the authorities.

The move is seen as a further sign that Egypt’s military-backed government aims to squeeze the Palestinian Islamist group that rules neighboring Gaza.

“The court has ordered the banning of Hamas work and activities in Egypt,” a judge said on Tuesday.

The court ordered that Hamas offices in Egypt be shut down and all dealings with the group suspended.
