December 17, 2006 23:48

Egypt's parliament on Sunday said it considered a military-style parade by Muslim Brotherhood university students to be a "serious threat" to Egypt's security and stability. Mufeed Shehab, Minister of State for Legal Affairs and Legislative Councils, said the Dec. 10 parade at Al-Azhar University that featured students in black-clad militia-style uniforms "has incited fear among citizens," the pro-government Al-Gomhouria newspaper reported in its early Monday editions. "The government will act with an iron fist against anyone who seeks this," Shehab said, according to the newspaper. "The government looks at what has happened as a serious threat that targets Egypt's security and stability."
