Egypt blocks Muslim Brotherhood hospital for the poor

Egypt is knocking down a new hospital built by the Muslim Brotherhood to serve poor residents of Cairo because officials claim it “violates building regulations”.

Government opponents say the decision to tear down the hospital, which the Brotherhood says has cost about 40 million Egyptian pounds ($7.30 million) so far, is politically motivated.

The Brotherhood is Egypt’s biggest opposition group and holds a fifth of the seats in parliament, won in the 2005 vote. But it is officially banned so its candidates must run as independents and Brotherhood members are regularly arrested.    »»» World Bulletin (Turkey)
