Egypt accuses Islamist group of staring armed wing

Egyptian authorities on Sunday accused the ousted president's Muslim Brotherhood of forming a "military wing" to stage attacks on security forces in a southern province, as months-long street rallies by the group's supporters wane but low-level violence steadily rises.

 

Attackers are increasingly using Molotov cocktails and home-made grenades to burn police vehicles and strike troop barracks in Cairo. New groups supporting the ousted president have claimed responsibility for the attacks on social networking sites and Jihadi websites. (AP)
