Egypt: Court Bans Muslim Brotherhood's Party

An Egyptian court has dissolved the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the political wing of the banned Muslim Brotherhood, Reuters reported.

A court banned the Muslim Brotherhood itself in September, but that ruling did not mention its political wing, leaving open the possibility it could be allowed to run in parliamentary elections, due late this year.
