Egypt Brotherhood talks of coup, but retracts comment

CAIRO (Reuters) - A member of the Muslim Brotherhood said on Thursday he feared the army was staging a military coup, but later said any official comment from Egypt’s biggest opposition group would depend on the final outcome.

“It looks like a military coup ... I feel worry and anxiety. The problem is not with the president it is with the regime,” Essam al-Erian, a senior member of the group, had told Reuters.

But he later said: “We will not comment until the situation clears.”
