The raid found weapons, cash, documents and computer memory cards. The terrorist attack the group was plotting targeted the nation’s army, police department, judicial system and members of the media.This raid comes just days after Hisham Barakat, the country’s state prosecutor, was assassinated in a car bombing in Cairo. Officials said evidence found in the raid on the Brotherhood will be used in the investigation of Barakat’s death.Related Muslim Brotherhood leader dies in Egypt prison Muslim Brotherhood Calls for Egypt ‘Rebellion’ El-Sisi Resigns as Military Chieflast_img
