Violence in several cities l More than 200 wounded in the attacks on offices of the Muslim Brotherhood


The skirmishes against the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood and its political party have left more than 200 injured across Egypt . The outburst was particularly virulent in the headquarters of the group to which it belongs Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi, located on the outskirts of Cairo on Saturday, protected by a large police presence after hours of pitched battle between members of the Brotherhood and opponents. The violence, which was primed on around the building and vehicles carrying supporters Mursi, is a déjà vu of the severe political polarization that since last November in the country's most populous Arab world. A week ago, similar clashes surrounded the compound, located in the Cairo neighborhood of Moqatam after activists tried to paint slogans on the walls. A dozen journalists covering the riots then denounced the attack of militants and security guards of the Brothers. And a video spread like wildfire on the Internet with a bearded slapped by the activist Mervat Musa , in the sequence that ends widespread collapsing. A history that inspired yesterday whom they headed the way to the headquarters of the Brotherhood in the dubbed "Friday to restore dignity." In anticipation of the protests, the Brotherhood-with a powerful network of supporters and 85 years of history, urged his people to move to the building to protect it . Some facilities abandoned on Saturday after two intense days. The cross fire broke out shortly after Friday's Muslim prayer. The opposition march-dozen 'baltaguiya' (thugs), as the Brotherhood, met with the group Islamist militants en route to their headquarters.The riot police fired into the wee hours of the morning tear gas andpellets fired to quell a battle that destroyed several minibuses and hit an ambulance carrying the injured. Bottles, stones and molotov cocktails alarmed the residents of this district of the capital.

Attacks in several cities

Shouting 'Badia, sold the revolution' (in reference to the supreme guide of the Brotherhood), anger also spread by other properties of the main political movement in Egypt . Several hundred protesters, according to the state newspaper 'Al Ahram', ransacked the offices of the group on the island of Manial, in downtown Cairo. In Alexandria, the target was an office of the political arm Freedom and Justice. Other facilities in the cities of Mansoura, Mahalla al Kubra and Zagazig, located on the delta of the Nile, were damaged. In his Twitter account, President Mohamed Mursi again accused foreign interests attempting to divide the Egyptians. And the Muslim Brotherhood condemned attacks that, in its view, demonstrate that lack the "militia" denouncing opponents. "The thugs have been attacking us with weapons and Molotov cocktails during the last 12 hours. Si (militia) exist, the scene would have been different," said spokesman Ahmed Aref in the group page on Facebook. "The Muslim Brotherhood has survived three kings and four presidents of the First Republic. All of them left and the Brotherhood remains strong, with a humanitarian message and Islamic increasingly robust and its spread in over 60 countries on six continents" The vice president said the Freedom and Justice, Esam El Erian.

Political instability

For its part, the government on Saturday condemned the unrest and urged the political forces that do not provide "political cover" to attacks that try to "drag the country into a state of violence and abort its democratic transition and the holding of parliamentary elections ", initially set for next April but suspended while the Constitutional Court reviews the electoral law. In recent months, the deep division between Islamist and secular opposition has increased political instability exacerbated by the legal morass and economic ruin. After the revolution that toppled the regime of Hosni Mubarak in February 2011, the Muslim Brotherhood has emerged as the main political force in Egypt and the current president, Mohamed Mursi, was one of its leaders until he agreed to the Head of State.
