Egypt probing Brotherhood alleged attack

 Sources have revealed that the Egyptian authorities have accused detained senior members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the country's biggest opposition group, of trying to set up training camps for staging attacks. This in fact is contradictory to all that the movement stands for where it advocates tolerance and forbearance. The officially banned Brotherhood has in fact renounced violence since the 1970s, and says it adheres to peaceful political reform to establish a democratic, Islamic state . 

Three senior officials of the Brotherhood were among 16 members rounded up early on Monday February 8, in the latest of a series of swoops, which the group says are aimed at disrupting preparations for parliamentary elections due later this year.

State security had also accused Brotherhood deputy leader Mahmoud Ezzat and two other senior members, Essam el-Erian and Abdel-Rahman el-Barr, of setting up a body aligned with the thinking of former Brotherhood leader, Sayed Qutb, who was executed in the 1960s and whose ideas have inspired militants
