Baku-APA. Egypt's cabinet described on Friday the Muslim Brotherhood group as "terrorists and outlaws," APA reports quoting Xinhua

In a statement, the cabinet said that security forces have been facing the attacks by terrorist elements and outlaws, and have arrested some terrorists belonging to the "Brotherhood organization."

The cabinet urged all citizens to preserve national unity and avoid division.

The government, armed forces, police and people are standing together in face of the Brotherhood's brutal "terrorist" plans, said the statement.

There are renewed calls of dissolving the Muslim Brotherhood's group, with some people once again considering the Brotherhood as "illegal."

Violent clashes erupted during the dispersal operation against pro-Morsi supporters on Wednesday, leaving at least 578 killed. On Friday, dozens more people were killed and hundreds injured across the country.

Egypt's liberal Democratic Front party called on Friday for listing the Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, adding that the group's members should be held accountable for the violence.

In light of the ongoing violence and vandalism, the party announced in a statement its support for the army and the police.

Banned since 1954, the Muslim Brotherhood group started to participate prominently in Egypt's political process after toppling president Hosni Mubarak in 2011, and enlarged its role after its candidate Mohamed Morsi became the country's first elected president.
