Egypt dissolves 169 Muslim Brotherhood NGOs

Cairo: Egypt's ministry of social solidarity Monday ordered the dissolution of 169 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) affiliated with the blacklisted Muslim Brotherhood, Xinhua news agency reported citing state-run Ahram Online.

The move comes in line with a previous ruling issued by the Court of Urgent Matters banning the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood and ordering the seizure of all the group's assets, the ministry said in a statement.

In December 2013, the Egyptian government termed the Muslim Brotherhood, the power base of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, as a terrorist organisation, following a number of deadly attacks across the country.

The government attributed the attacks to members of the group.

In February 2014, an Egyptian court also designated the Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.

Egypt has been facing a growing wave of anti-security terrorist attacks in the Sinai Peninsula and other parts across the country following the removal of Morsi in July 2013.

A crackdown on Morsi's supporters left hundreds of them dead. Thousands more have been arrested and are being tried.
