CAIRO - Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood expelled five of its members for setting up a political party in defiance of the group's own Freedom and Justice party, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The Brotherhood's Guidance Council decided to bar the five members of the movement's youth wing after they established the Egyptian Current party, Shorouk newspaper said.

One of the five said they planned to appeal against the expulsion and to impress on the Brotherhood leadership the part they played in the popular uprising that unseated President Hosni Mubarak in February.

"The decision for us to join the movement was not a decision made by the council, so how can we be expelled from it?," Abdel Rahman Khalil was quoted by the newspaper as saying.
