CAIRO, - An Egyptian court on Saturday banned the armed wing of the Palestinian group Hamas and listed it as a terrorist organization.

Hamas is an offshoot of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood which the authorities have also declared a terrorist group and have repressed systematically since the army ousted one of its leaders, Mohamed Morsi, from the presidency in 2013.
