Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood vows to continue protests against Morsi’s ouster


CAIRO: Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has vowed to continue its “peaceful” resistance against the country’s military until ousted Islamist President Muhammad Morsi is reinstated, as thousands rallied at a mosque in Cairo.

The statement came a day after Egypt’s military-backed government tightened its crackdown on the Brotherhood, ordering the arrest of its spiritual leader in a bid to choke off the group’s campaign to reinstate Morsi.

“We will continue our peaceful resistance to the bloody military coup against constitutional legitimacy,” the Brotherhood said.

“We trust that the peaceful and popular will of the people shall triumph over force and oppression,” it said.

The Brotherhood also denounced the warrants for the arrest of Muhammad Badie and nine other leading Islamists for inciting violence that left dozens dead in Cairo on Monday, saying “dictatorship is back” and insisting it will never work with the interim rulers.

Meanwhile‚ an Egyptian foreign ministry spokesman said in Cairo that former President Morsi is being held in a safe place and treated in a dignified manner.
