Egypt court orders closure of Al-Jazeera Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood TV
CAIRO (AFP) - A Cairo court on Tuesday ordered the closure of four television channels, including Al-Jazeera Egypt and Ahrar 25, a network belonging to the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood.
The other two channels to be closed are the Islamist broadcasters Al-Yarmuk and Al-Quds, according to the court order.
The closure comes a day after Islamist broadcaster Al-Hafez was ordered shut following accusations that it was "inciting hatred" against Coptic Christians and "undermining national unity".
Ahrar 25 was among several other Islamist networks that went off air soon after the July 3 ouster by the military of president Mohamed Mursi.
