Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood suffered strong blow, anger beyond control: spokesman
CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood and its allies have suffered a "very strong blow" from a state security crackdown and their central coordination has been lost, a spokesman said on Thursday.
Gehad El-Haddad also said two leaders of the group were shot when police raided two Cairo protest camps of supporters of deposed president Mohamed Mursi on Wednesday and the violence means anger "is beyond control now."
