Boston Marathon - Egypt
CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has condemned the Boston Marathon bombings, calling them "sinful assaults" and saying that Islamic law does not condone violence against civilians.
A Tuesday statement from the Islamist group's political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party, expressed "condolences to the American people and to the families of victims, with hopes for a quick recovery of those injured."
The party also says that Islamic law "firmly rejects assaults on civilians and doesn't accept any means of terrorizing people, regardless of their religion, color, or gender."
Egypt's President Mohammed Morsi hails from the Brotherhood.
