Cairo: A leader of the Muslim Brotherhood vowed that the movement would keep up protests after Egypt`s military-installed government designated it a "terrorist" group on Wednesday.

"The protests will continue, certainly," Ibrahim Munir, a member of the group`s executive council who is in exile in London, said, adding the move was "illegitimate".

"This is an attempt to frame the Brotherhood," Munir said of the decision, taken a day after a suicide bombing of a police headquarters in the city of Mansoura killed 15 people, in an attack claimed by an al Qaeda-inspired militant group.

The interim government blamed the movement for the bombing and said on Wednesday that it had "decided to declare the Muslim Brotherhood movement a terrorist organisation".
