Egypt’s Brotherhood Rejects Appeal to Accept Post-Morsi Reality

The Muslim Brotherhood has rejected pleas from international envoys to “swallow the reality” that Mohamed Morsi will not return as Egypt’s president, the Brotherhood spokesman said on Monday.

The envoys, trying to resolve a political crisis brought on by the army’s overthrow of the Islamist Morsi a month ago, had visited jailed Brotherhood deputy leader Khairat El-Shater in the early hours of Monday.
