Court for Urgent Matters Labels Ajnad Misr a Terrorist Organization

May 22, 2014 . By

Egypt’s Court for Urgent Matters labeled Ajnad Misr (Soldiers of Egypt) a terrorist organization. This designation came after lawyer Ahmed Soliman filed a complaint with the court asking for the judgment. He pointed out that the group had taken responsibility for several terrorist attacks in Egypt that include the bombing near Cairo University last month and several attacks and bombings on police targets.

As the government cracks down on Islamists, officials have stated that over 500 people, mostly police and military officers, have been killed in terrorist attacks since the ouster of Morsi last July
