Topic: Egypt lists top Brotherhood leader, 17 others as terrorists: state media


Egypt's public prosecutor has listed the Muslim Brotherhood's leader and 17 other top members of the group as terrorists, state media said on Sunday, part of a sustained crackdown by the authorities on Islamists. Egypt has already listed the Brotherhood as a terrorist organization and jailed thousands of its supporters since the army removed Islamist president Mohamed Mursi from power in July 2013 following mass protests against his rule. The Brotherhood's General Guide Mohamed Badie and Khairat El-Shater were listed alongside other members of the group's leadership, state news agency MENA said. Most members of the Brotherhood's leadership in Egypt are in custody and have already been given lengthy jail sentences or the death penalty.
