A group of men stormed a Muslim Brotherhood office in the Egyptian capital on Friday, ransacking it and assaulting some of the group's members, the movement's spokesman told AFP.

The attack on the office came as hundreds of protesters clashed with police and Islamists outside their main headquarters in another Cairo neighbourhood.

The Islamist group's spokesman Ahmed Aref said the men assaulted women in the office who were holding an event commemorating Mothers' Day, and then forced them into bathrooms before they destroyed the office's contents.
