Egyptian court designates Hamas as a terror organization, state media says

Morsy was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist political organization that shares deep ties with Hamas. The government formed after Morsy’s ouster designated the Brotherhood as a terrorist group in December 2013; since then, many of its leaders have been charged with supporting terrorism.

This ruling comes a week after Egypt passed the a law on what will happen to members of organizations the government labels terror groups.
