CAIRO - The Muslim Brotherhood is holding Egypt's Interior Ministry responsible for two separate attacks on Islamist politicians over the last 24 hours, it said on Friday, accusing it of ignoring death threats made to its members.

Brotherhood parliamentarian Hassan al-Prince was seriously injured in a crash on Friday when a lorry pulled out in front of his moving car. Late on Thursday, armed men beat up presidential candidate Abdel Moneim Abol Fotoh."We hold the Interior Ministry and all its institutions entirely responsible for these incidents," the Brotherhood said in a statement, saying Prince and a fellow lawmaker had recently received death threats.

"We demand (state authorities) perform the role they are supposed to perform and realize the people will not forgive them for their neglect and the dereliction of the rights of their country and its citizens," read a statement on the website of the Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) which emerged as the biggest single party in Egypt's parliamentary election.
