Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badea condemned violent events that left 28 MB premises torched and attempts made to storm the main HQ of the group and its party.
The number of MB members killed in the recent events reached eight, Badea told a press conference held at the group's HQ in the northeastern Cairo neighborhood of Mokattam on Saturday.
Burning the group's buildings is not categorized as political opposition but crimes, the MB leader said, urging the prosecutor general to swiftly open investigations into the incidents and bring those responsible to account.
Despite all of this, the group still extends its hand to all political powers and asks them to denounce the regrettable incidents, where violence was used and public and private property was damaged, he said.
The group holds the Interior Ministry responsible for protecting its premises, he said.
