Egyptian authorities are examining ways to legally ban the Muslim Brotherhood. After weeks of violence and insurrection, the Egyptian government is of the opinion that peace can never be achieved as long as the Muslim Brotherhood is allowed to continue to operate.
This past week was especially bloody with death tolls as high as 800. The military broke down two camps put up by the supporters of Mohamed Morsi. Morsi supporters attacked coptic Christian churches and burned police stations in retaliation. The Egyptian authorities feel they have no choice but to ban the Muslim Brotherhood, after they have steadfastly refused to join the government and are adamant about the reinstatement of Morsi, which they cannot do.
The two forces clashed again last night at a mosque being used to store the bodies of the dead from the last night's violence. The standoff culminated in the detainment of the capture of the rebels who were hiding inside. The brother of Al Qaeda leader, Ayman al-Zawahri, was captured in Egypt earlier. Mohammed al-Zawahri of the ultraconservative Jihadi Salafist Group, was captured when he was stopped at a checkpoint in Giza.
The son of Muslim Brotherhood leader, Mohammed Badie, was killed in th protest at the mosque. Ammar Badie was among the 173 dead. He was 38. No mention of the location of his father, who is set to go on trial August 25th for inciting violence.
