ALEXANDRIA, April 15 (Aswat Masriya) An Alexandria court banned Muslim Brotherhood members on Tuesday from running for Egypt's upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections.
Egypt will vote for a new president on May 26 and 27.
The Brotherhood was declared a terrorist organization in December after it was accused of carrying out an attack on a security office that left 16 dead.
The Brotherhood has denied the use of violence.
Attacks on security forces and arrests of Brotherhood supporters have increased since the ousting of President Mohamed Mursi in July.
