The Muslim Brotherhood has just confirmed on their official twitter account "Ikhwanweb" that none of its members are currently in the Abbasiya area near the Ministry of Defence (MOD).

The MB also denied any involvement in the ongoing clashes between protestors and the Military police, and called for all involved parties to apply self restraint.

The Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the MB's political arm, organised a mass protest on Friday to denounce deaths of 7 protesters on Wednesday and express dissatisfaction with the recent practices by the ruling military council.
