In a statement issued Saturday, Mr. Mohamed Mahdi Akef, Chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), expressed MBs’ deep regret and sadness over the escalation of violence in Alexandria between Muslims and Christians and urged both sides for restraint.

“. . . It is evident that such attacks on people of different religions-whether Muslims or Christisns- remain to be isolated incidents in our community and should be dealt with accordingly in order to protect national unity.

We also warn against exploiting these random acts of violence either to paint a false picture of religious persecution of Copts in Egypt, or to be used by the government as an excuse to extend the emergency laws which were not successful to prevent such incidents from happening over a quarter of a century since they were first implemented.

We demand authorities to do a thorough investigation of these crimes and bring perpetrators to justice. We offer our condolences to the families of the victims and pray for the speedy recovery for those who have been injured”
