Egypt court bans Muslim Brotherhood's political wing

BBC Online

A court in Egypt has dissolved the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the Muslim Brotherhood's political wing.
The government of President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has cracked down harshly on the Islamist movement and other opponents over the past year.
Last July, Mr Sisi - then head of the military - ousted President Mohammed Morsi, a former leader of the FJP, following mass protests.
The Brotherhood was declared a terrorist group in December.
