Live and learn: Egypt considers disbanding Muslim Brotherhood

The spokesman of the Egyptian Cabinet says authorities are considering disbanding the Muslim Brotherhood group.

Spokesman Sherif Shawki said Saturday that Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi assigned Ministry of Social Solidarity to study the legal possibilities of dissolving the group. He didn’t elaborate.

The Muslim Brotherhood group, founded in 1928, came to power a year ago when its leader Mohammed Morsi was elected in the country’s first free presidential elections. The election came after the overthrow of longtime autocratic president Hosni Mubarak.

Morsi was overthrown in a popularly backed military coup July 3.
