Cairo,Egypt : Several journalists attacked by Muslim Brotherhood members

Several journalists were attacked by Muslim Brotherhood members

 

Clashes at the Muslim Brotherhood’s headquarters in Mokattam district, Cairo, intensified late on Saturday, with reported assaults on journalists by group members adding fuel to fire.

Violence first broke out earlier in the day shortly after a meeting between Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie and Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal.

Protests against President Mohamed Morsi, who hails from the Muslim Brotherhood, and Badie who many critics say is the actual ruler of the country, were staged by dozens of protesters.

The ensuing violence renewed accusations that the Muslim Brotherhood field strongmen to assault the opposition, which the Islamist group faced late last year when its supporters and opponents engaged in deadly clashes in front of the presidential palace in Cairo.

Activist Ahmed Doma, a staunch critic of the incumbent regime, sustained several injuries after he was beaten up by what he described as the Brotherhood’s “militias.”

Egypt’s private paper Al-Masry Al-Youm reported that its journalist, Mohamed Talaat, was assaulted by “youth of the Muslim Brotherhood” on Saturday.

Amr Hafez, a photographer from Al-Watan – another private daily – said he was also injured when the Brotherhood youth attacked those drawing graffiti.

Conversely, senior Brotherhood spokesman Mahmoud Ghozlan said in a media statement that some journalists and photographers were involved in “provocative” acts along with protesters.

By midnight, several protesters hurled rocks at the police forces, who blocked the surrounding streets to prevent angry demonstrators from reaching the Brotherhood’s headquarters, and torched a police vehicle.
