Muslim Brotherhood offices in Cairo set on fire

CAIRO (Reuters) – The Muslim Brotherhood’s main office in the Egyptian capital and an office used by the Islamist group in a suburb south of Cairo were set on fire late on Thursday, Brotherhood officials and state media said. Egypt has been in turmoil since President Mohamed Mursi issued a decree on November 22 awarding himself wide powers. On Wednesday night, seven people were killed in clashes around the presidential palace before security forces stopped the fighting. SOURCE: CHICAGO TRIBUNE
