Police have started a probe into whether the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's top Islamic opposition group, is setting up a military wing after members demonstrated in a Cairo university in black-clad militia-style uniform, security officials said Monday. About 50 Brotherhood student members staged a military-style parade in black uniform and balaklavas during a protest Sunday by hundreds of Broterhood supporters at the Al-Azhar Islamic University campus. A security official told The Associated Press that the police had opened an investigation into whether the group has set up a militia.
