Tuesday's raid on Al-Hurriya Wal Adala's offices came a day after a Cairo court banned the Brotherhood and ordered its assets seized, delivering a vital blow to the movement of deposed president Mohammed Morsi.
The moves by Egypt's army-backed authorities are part of a sustained campaign against the Islamist movement since Morsi was ousted by the army on July 3 after mass street protests against his year-long rule.
“The forces of the military coup in Egypt closed the headquarters of Al-Hurriya Wal Adala newspaper which is the mouthpiece of the party,” said Ikhwanonline, the Brotherhood website.
