The Egypt military’s refusal to end its crackdown on demonstrators
supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and leaders ousted from power may
hinder international efforts aimed at resolving the crisis this week.
Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie and his deputy Khairat el-Shater
will face trial at the end of the month for inciting violence that
killed eight people outside the movement’s Cairo headquarters on June
30, the same day millions rose up across Egypt against former president
“This is part of the behavior and policy of the state against the
Brotherhood,” said Khalil Al-Anani, an expert on Islamist movements and
Egyptian politics who is currently in Cairo.
