CAIRO, Sept 25 (Reuters) – Egyptian security forces killed nine armed members of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood in a raid on a Cairo home on Friday, security officials said.
“The Brotherhood members clashed with security forces,” said one of the officials, adding that they were meeting to plan what he called “terrorist attacks”.
The Brotherhood, which was removed from power by the army in 2013, has accused authorities in the Arab world’s largest state of killing members it says were unarmed in similar operations.
In July, the Brotherhood called for a revolt after police killed 13 prominent members in a swoop on an apartment in the Cairo suburb of the 6th of October. The men’s families and lawyers said they were unarmed.
Among the dead in that raid was Nasser al-Hafi, a prominent lawyer for the Brotherhood and a former lawmaker. Egypt’s Interior Ministry said the 13 men were plotting attacks.

Los Angeles authorities say as many as five women may have been sexual assaulted by a Saudi prince inside his massive Beverly Hills compound.
When cops arrived at the residence along Wallingford Drive, in Beverly Hills, to check out a disturbance call that came in around 12:45 a.m. on Wednesday, they discovered a horde of people milling about in front of the $37 million, 22,000-acre gated mansion.
After conducting interviews, the police officers arrested Majed Abulaziz Al-Saud, a 28-year-old Saudi prince, for allegedly trying to force at least one unidentified woman to perform oral sex against her will. What’s more, “four more victims allege the same crimes committed—including criminal threats [by Al-Saud],” an LAPD police spokesman told The Daily Beast, noting that all the alleged victims and witnesses who were interviewed said the alleged attacks occurred on the same day.
WASHINGTON, Sept 25 (Reuters) – New Syrian Forces gave the al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front six pickup trucks and ammunition that had been supplied by the U.S.-led coalition, the U.S. military said in a statement on Friday.
“If accurate, the report of NSF members providing equipment to al Nusra Front is very concerning and a violation of Syria train-and-equip program guidelines,” U.S. Central Command spokesman Colonel Patrick Ryder said in a statement.

Pope Francis is more than head of the Catholic Church — he’s also the head of state of the Vatican, which as a government has possibly the most restrictive immigration and citizenship policies of any nation in the world.
The pope, traveling to the U.S. for the first time, has made a special appeal to Americans to welcome immigrants, using his address to a joint meeting of Congress Thursday to invoke the Golden Rule in demanding generosity toward the millions of Central and South Americans seeking to come to the country.
