CAIRO, Feb 1 (Aswat Masriya) An Egyptian appeals court approved on Saturday a ban on Muslim Brotherhood activities and freeze of their funds and assets, striking down all pleas to the verdict.

Egypt’s army ousted Islamist President Mohamed Mursi of the Brotherhood in July in response to mass demonstrations against his rule.

Since then, thousands of Brotherhood supporters have been arrested and detained while Mursi and his top aides stand trial for inciting violence.
