CAIRO (Reuters) - A senior official in Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood said on Tuesday that interim Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi had not offered the movement any posts in the transitional cabinet, and that if he did, the Brotherhood would reject it.

"Beblawi, or anyone from the government of the coup, did not offer us any position in the government, and if they do, we will refuse," Mohamed El-Beltagi told reporters.
